Mystery Police Procedural
DCI Elaine Hope barely survived her last case. Someone is
still determined to put an end to her. But could the culprit
be one of her London Metropolitan Police colleagues?
Detective Chief Inspector Elaine Hope still bears the
scars—both physical and emotional—of the devastating assault
that nearly ended her life nine months ago. Now, she wants
two things: to salvage a police career in tatters, and to
get payback. But who is the ultimate culprit? Is it Anton
Srecko, capo of the brutal gangsters who attacked her? Or is
it someone within the London Metropolitan Police, who failed
to send backup when she most needed help?
Put on desk duty while she recovers from the attack, Elaine
runs her rogue investigation in secret. Despite the crime
chart on her bedroom wall, a slate of clandestine informers,
and a list of likely suspects, she hits a maddening dead end.
Meanwhile, former members of Elaine’s team, Detectives
Philip Bull and Simon Costello, find themselves assigned to
what appears to be a vicious gangland execution that has
taken place in the posh neighbourhood of Kensington. The
victim bears a tattoo that links him to the Sreckos, and a
mysterious barefoot blonde woman was seen fleeing the scene.
Their new DI seems to be quashing the investigation. When
they turn to Elaine for help, she’s given one last chance to
save her career. But she’ll have to give up her
off-the-books investigation and work closely with an old
nemesis. Can she?
As Elaine is pushed closer and closer to the edge, the
evidence grows ever more perplexing and chilling. Building
on A. R. Ashworth’s acclaimed series debut, Two Faced
is the second Elaine Hope mystery to deliver nonstop
suspense leading to an unexpected and spectacular climax.
