Detective Inspector Paolo Sterling has just six weeks to solve a series of murders by insulin injection, with nothing to connect the victims except the manner of death and a note left at each crime scene.
The murderer, determined to avenge a wrong from many years earlier, gets close to his prey by assuming various identities.
Can Paolo win in his race against the pretender?
This is #3 in Lorraine Mace’s Detective Paolo Sterling series, but while I have read the other two, I feel this could easily be read as a stand-alone.
A professor has been murdered, but he was not a well liked man and many were more than happy to let their opinion of him to be known. So the list of suspects is remarkably long….
A police find a clue and believe there will be further victims….but who will be next? Just what is the link?
A dark, gritty thriller, with a fast pace and the desperation of DI Paolo Sterling trying to solve the crimes is palpable….very clever, nail biting and gripping. If you like a dark, police procedural then this is for you.
