A complex tale of deception and revenge leads Skinner and his people to a bloody encounter and a dramatic confrontation in this 20th volume of Quintin Jardine's outstanding cop series
The horrific suicide of a successful Lithuanian entrepreneur rouses suspicion among the newly appointed Chief Constable Bob Skinner and his colleagues. They’ve crossed swords with the businessman before; why would a man with everything to live for take his own life? As enquiries begin, a mystery girl, drugged and incoherent, is dumped in a health center by a mysterious Galahad, who promptly disappears. Who is she, who is he, and where has he gone? Is it coincidence that most of the massage parlors in the city have suddenly closed overnight?
Quintin Jardine is the author of the Bob Skinner Mysteries and the Oz Blackstone series.
