*********************************************************************
ONE ASSASSIN. ONE SERIAL KILLER. TWO ANGELS OF DEATH.

After a gap of ten years, a female serial killer - the Angel of St Pauli - again makes the headlines when an English pop star is found in Hamburg's red-light district, dying of the most savage knife wounds. Jan Fabel is called in to investigate.

Links emerge with a series of apparently unrelated events. A journalist murdered in Norway. The death of a Serbian gangster. And a long-forgotten project by East Germany's Stasi conceived at the height of the Cold War, involving a highly-trained group of female assassins, known by the codename Valkyrie.

Fabel's hunt for the truth will bring him up against the most terrifyingly efficient professional killer. The ultimate avenging angel.

“Superb”

Fantastic conclusion to the Jan Fabel series, a well worth waiting for Christmas gift! Takes some effort in the beginning, and is worth a re read once you're finished, but stick with it!
