From bestselling author Carol Smith, a chilling suspense novel of cold-blooded revenge
The cold-blooded butchery of a mother and her daughters triggers a wave of outrage in the media. Though not immediately obvious because they are so widely-spaced, this is just the latest in a series of bloody murders.
It takes the patient persistence of cartographer, William Huxley, to sense a link the police have missed and slowly unravel the puzzle. Stuck at home with the two-year-old Morwenna while his high-flying wife, Edwina, plays with fire, William, the puzzle-solver, slowly assembles the pieces, aided solely by a cub reporter and the valiant cleaning lady, Mrs. P.
When a prominent public figure is hacked to death, events take a sudden sharp curve for the worse. Particularly when it rapidly becomes clear that William is the next intended victim.
Carol Smith worked in the book world in many different jobs before setting up her own literary agency which specialised in finding and nurturing new talent. After having her first three novels published, she took the plunge and quit the day job. She lives in Chiswick with a pair of opinionated Burmese cats, Amadeus and Orlando.
