Private detective Spenser has travelled to London in search of the bombers who attacked his client's family. His job is to catch them. Or kill them. His client isn't choosy.
But there are nine killers to one Spenser - long odds. Hawk helps balance the equation. The rest depends on a wild plan. Spenser will get one of the terrorists to play Judas Goat - to lead him to the others. Trouble is, he hasn't counted on her being blond, beautiful and very dangerous.
Praise for Robert B. Parker:
