'A rich and compelling crime thriller' Adam Hamdy

A serial killer stalks the streets of Rome...

A gripping debut crime novel and the first in a groundbreaking series, from a new star in British crime fiction. Perfect for fans of Ian Rankin.

'An intelligent, taut, stunner of a debut ... Twists and turns aplenty in this complex, cleverly plotted crime thriller' Deborah Masson

A city on lockdown.
In the depths of a freakish winter, Rome is being torn apart by a serial killer dubbed The Carpenter intent on spreading fear and violence. Soon another woman is murdered - hammered to death and left with a cryptic message nailed to her chest.

A detective in danger.
Maverick Detective Inspectors Rossi and Carrara are assigned to the investigation. But when Rossi's girlfriend is attacked - left in a coma in hospital - he becomes the killer's new obsession and his own past hurtles back to haunt him.

A killer out of control.
As the body count rises, with one perfect murder on the heels of another, the case begins to spiral out of control. In a city wracked by corruption and paranoia, the question is: how much is Rossi willing to sacrifice to get to the truth?

3.5 stars

When I read the blurb for this book, I was immediately drawn to the story line & location. However, whether or not it’s being marketed with an accurate tag line is open for debate.
