The third novel in the Women's Murder Club series. One of the best-loved heroines from the Women s Murder Club is about to die. Which one will it be?
Detective Lindsay Boxer is jogging along a beautiful San Francisco street as a ferocious blast rips through the neighbourhood. A townhouse owned by an internet magnate explodes into flames, three people die and a sinister note signed August Spies is found at the scene. Soon a wave of violence sweeps through the city and it seems that whoever is behind it is intent on killing someone every three days.
