Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stunning literary crime novel, from the acclaimed author of Peacetime.

The first in a trilogy of contemporary crime novels set in the city of Hull, and told in the wry tones of the troubled Private Investigator Leo Rivers. Robert Edric’s new departure into Noirish fiction is reminiscent of Chandler and Mosley, and yet remains uniquely British. Against the backdrop of a world of pornography and child murder, this dark and intense novel reads like a game of chess where every piece is invested with a deceptive significance. Edric’s trademarks of vivid characterization and delicious prose are as seductive as ever.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

An impoverished child murderer unexpectedly appeals his conviction. In return for a reduced sentence, he offers to implicate those who were involved in the crimes but never caught, provide evidence of police corruption, and, most importantly, reveal the whereabouts of the corpses of several teenage girls. Distressed at what may come to light, yet desperate to locate the body of his own missing daughter, the father of one of the girls approaches Private Investigator Leo Rivers with a plea for help.
