Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The third novel starring Detective Inspector Harry Vicary of London’s Murder and Serious Crime Unit begins, in a manner reminiscent of a Kathy Reichs novel (or perhaps, more accurately, of the opening scene of an episode of Bones), with the discovery, between the walls of a building under renovation, of a note pointing its finders to the location of some apparently long-buried human remains. Are they connected to a seven-year-old incident in which two men vanished from a party held to celebrate the release of a notorious gangster from prison? Fans of the author’s long-running Hennessey and Yellich procedural series should enjoy this book, although they ought to be warned that the Vicary stories are somewhat darker than the usual H&Y fare (the writing is a bit different, too: slightly sparser and more abrupt). Vicary, a cop with some shadows in his own past, is an increasingly interesting lead character, and each book in this new series is better than the last. If this trend continues, expect to hear much more about Vicary and his creator. --David Pitt

The author is a minimalist as for description. There isn't any. The story is told through dialog, and that is first rate.

This book is a real page turner. There was no distraction with police personal lives just short interludes to reveal their personal lives.
Good procedural police drama.

The story is too repetitive. It is not up to Peter Turnbull's previous work. He has done better in the past.
