Thomas Lynley torna a indagare affiancato dalla sua collega Barbara Havers e da Winston Nkata, da poco promosso detective, e il caso che devono affrontare richiederà tutte le loro abilità deduttive. Per le strade di Londra si muove un sinistro assassino. Sulla sua strada ha lasciato il corpo nudo e mutilato di un giovane adolescente e una serie di macabri indizi lasciano pensare all'opera di un serial killer. Lynley scopre presto che l'assassino ha già colpito altre tre volte, senza che la polizia sia arrivata a collegare i casi o a dare loro importanza. La ragione purtroppo è molto semplice: le prime vittime erano ragazzi neri.

A big part of what I enjoy about murder mystery series is that we get to know the primary characters over time, and see them develop. So to mess around Leggi tutto
SPOILER ALERT: This review reveals an irritating, but important, plot detail. Sweet Lord mother of God. Did nobody tell this woman that reading a book about a crazed serial killer is tough enough going? But to kill off Lynley's fricking WIFE in the middle of the book! For no apparent reason. Give me Leggi tutto
I remember reading this book when it first came out. I had read all its predecessors, but this one put me off Elizabeth George forever more. I also remember there was a great cry and backlash against the author for one particular event in this book, which, I believe, resulted in the subsequent "What Leggi tutto
