A domestic dispute has escalated into a bloodbath. When his uncle and aunt are found dead, Spike Sanguinetti must cross the Mediterranean to Malta for their funerals, leaving the courtroom behind. But the more he learns about their violent deaths, the more he is troubled by one thing: what could have prompted a mild-mannered art historian to stab his wife before turning the knife upon himself? Reunited with his ex-girlfriend, Zahra, Spike embarks on a trail that leads from the island's squalid immigrant camps to the ornate palazzos of the legendary Knights of St John. In Malta, it seems, brutality, greed and danger lie nearer to the surface than might first appear.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Thomas Mogford's second Sanguinetti thriller continues the excellent work of this London-based journalist and writer. As the hero peels back the layers of Malta's melting pot of a society, he delves further into the complicated world of the Knights of St John, which will leave the reader eagerly anticipating the next instalment of Sanguinetti's exciting life * Irish Examiner *
Mogford packs a great deal into a relatively slim novel but it's the familiar Mediterranean setting, fascinatingly presented, that will linger in reader's memories * Morning Star *
He has created a really intriguing central character in Spike Sanguinetti. A lawyer, not a detective or cop. A Gibraltar lawyer, even more fascinating and unusual, with license to roam. An intelligent shrewd young man with flaws and problems and a different personal history and not some hyper-competent super-hero. In other words a very human being. You go with Spike on his perilous journey and the complex pleasures and chicanery that ensue make you want to go on more of them * William Boyd *
