Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, February 2, 2009:
“Mary's observant, careful narration pulls readers into a bleak but gripping story of survival and the endless capacity of humanity to persevere . . .Fresh and riveting.”
Starred review, School Library Journal, May 2009:
"[T]he suspense that Ryan has created from the very first page on entices and tempts readers so that putting the book down is not an option."
The police never suspect that a serial killer might be at large until they discover the fourth body—the first white victim—draped across a tomb in a London graveyard. Now, accusations of racism are rampant and Scotland Yard is on the defensive, scrambling to apprehend a maniac while trying to avoid a potential public relations disaster. Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley and his disgraced partner Barbara Havers have been assigned to the investigation, and Winston Nkata has been hastily—though deservedly—promoted and made the station's spokesperson to the media.
But with Lynley distracted by concerns for his pregnant wife, Havers fighting for her professional future, and Nkata confronting a hostile public, no one has begun to imagine the tenacity and ingenuity of the killer they are seeking . . . and no one is prepared for the savage, shocking instant when everything will change forever.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
