Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

The police never suspected a serial killer was at large until they found the third murdered boy, the first white victim, his body draped over a tomb in a London graveyard. Suddenly a series of crimes and a potential public relations disaster have Scotland Yard on the defensive, scrambling to apprehend a maniac while avoiding accusations of racism.

Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley, distracted by concerns for his pregnant wife, has been assigned to the investigation, along with his disgraced partner, Barbara Havers, who's fighting for her professional future. Winston Nkata, deservedly, if hastily, promoted to detective sergeant, is the black face who will speak to the media. But none of them can imagine the tenacity and ingenuity of the killer they seek . . . and no one is prepared for the savage, shocking instant when everything will change forever.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2006-04-15)

This London-based police procedural, the 13th in a series featuring the new Scotland Yard team of Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers (e.g., A Place of Hiding), features a serial killer to complement George's usual deep characterizations of the main players. Elements of police politics and race and class struggles are accentuated, mainly through the character of newly promoted Jamaican detective Winston Nkata. A la Ed McBain's 87th Precinct novels, a raft of minor players are involved, and there are the usual central-casting types of streetwise Londoners, each a skillful caricature. Although this series and this installment are better-than-average, listeners will be put off by Donada Peters's hasty narration; though melodic, her voice is also sharp and causes characters to run together. For libraries where the author is popular.

Review by Library Journal (2005-03-15)

Over the past three months, three adolescent boys have been killed in London. The victims are black or of mixed racial heritage, and neither the police nor the press has taken much interest in the cases. However, when the fourth victim is white, the detectives at New Scotland Yard suddenly recognize that they are dealing with a serial killer and that they have a potential media nightmare on their hands.

After taking a backseat to other characters in George's past few mysteries (e.g., A Place of Hiding), Thomas Lynley and Barbara Havers return, along with detective Winston Nkata. Their task: to find the killer targeting boys enrolled in a program for at-risk youth. This is George at the top of her form; the story is well plotted and suspenseful, and some absorbing developments occur in the lives of her sleuths. George's many fans will love this one. Highly recommended.
