In Anne Cleeland's engaging and original new mystery series,
two of Scotland Yard's most gifted detectives navigate the
darkest corners of London to solve a murder that will blur
every line between right and wrong. . .
Despite their investigative prowess, Chief Inspector Michael
Sinclair, Lord Acton, and rookie detective Kathleen Doyle
stir more than a few feathers at CID Headquarters when their
relationship comes to light. But office politics quickly
become trivial when a rash of underworld murders shatters
London's normally austere faĂ§ade. With a growing list of
successfully solved cases to her name, the ever-dauntless
Doyle shakes off the gossip and sets out to investigate the
escalating turf war.
As the body count climbs, Doyle uncovers a seedy world where
fractious members of the Russian mafia and an Irish
terrorist group are fighting for control of a lucrative
underground business. But their crooked deals and volleying
acts of revenge are almost too much for Scotland Yard to
keep up with, and when Doyle notices that Acton seems
unusually troubled by the crimes, she begins to wonder what
sparked the conflict in the first place.
Perhaps there's nothing more to the murders than
under-the-table business dealings gone awry. Or perhaps a
single act of vigilante justice fanned the flames that
ignited a vicious turf war. As Doyle and Acton fight not to
become the next victims, they'll find that the truth may be
best left unspoken, and retribution may be best left to
fate. . .
