An unusual story that skates on the edge of possibility but, nevertheless, loses none of its grip and heart-pounding tension.
What sort of reason lies behind a serial killer who not only kills across countries, but across continents? How long does it take the investigative forces of these countries to finally realise there is a commonality to these deaths, seemingly only in the method of death – a thin-bladed accurate stab so forcefully through the heart that the blade exits through the victims’ backs?
Then, a DNA sample found at a crime scene pinpoints and an arrest is made, despite the conviction of the suspect’s family that she is innocent. Is the evidence planted, and by whom, asks Rory Mack Steele, private investigator employed by the family to find the truth. Why is everyone ignoring her alibi? Like everyone else, Steele is baffled and playing catch-up only as the body-count mounts.
A thoroughly entertaining who-dunnit. Thank you for the freebie, Eugene Lloyd Macrae. Keep ‘em coming.
