Inspector John Maddenâ€”who debuted in River of
Darknessâ€”returns in a gripping postâ€“World War II murder
On a quiet afternoon in 1947, retired bank manager Oswald
Gibson is shot in the head while fishing. In Scotland, a
respectable family doctor is killed in the same mannerâ€”and
with the same gun. What is the connection? Scotland Yardâ€™s
Detective Inspector Billy Styles and local detective Vic
Chivers are baffled until a letter from Gibson is discovered
that might shed some light on the caseâ€”a letter concerning
former Scotland Yard detective John Madden. Despite Maddenâ€™s
legendary memory, he has no recollection of meeting Gibson
or any idea of what their relationship might have been.
Madden is happily retired from police work, but agrees to
help his former protĂ©gĂ© Styles and the clues they uncover
only deepen the mystery. When a third man is killed in a
similar fashion, Madden and Styles find themselves in a race
against time to find the killer before another man ends up dead.
A smart, intricately plotted mystery, this is the fourth
title in the critically acclaimed and much loved John Madden
