Description

The police never suspect that a serial killer might be at large until they discover the fourth body—the first white victim—draped across a tomb in a London graveyard. Now, accusations of racism are rampant and Scotland Yard is on the defensive, scrambling to apprehend a maniac while trying to avoid a potential public relations disaster. Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley and his disgraced partner Barbara Havers have been assigned to the investigation, and Winston Nkata has been hastily—though deservedly—promoted and made the station's spokesperson to the media.

But with Lynley distracted by concerns for his pregnant wife, Havers fighting for her professional future, and Nkata confronting a hostile public, no one has begun to imagine the tenacity and ingenuity of the killer they are seeking . . . and no one is prepared for the savage, shocking instant when everything will change forever.

Praise For With No One as Witness

“A good read.”

-Daily News (NY)

“[A] juicy serial killer whodunit.”
-USA Today

“Will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”

“Delicately textured...achingly compassionate...gripping...it’s one of George’s best, and that’s saying something.”
-Seattle Times

“Powerful.”
-Orlando Sentinel

“Excellent.”
-Globe and Mail (Toronto)

-Associated Press
