Culver Valley Crime, Fiction, Crime & mystery, Thriller / suspense

Queen of psychological crime Sophie Hannah returns with a new literary mystery and a puzzle that's impossible to solve...

All she wanted to do was take her son's forgotten sports kit to school.

So why does Nicki Clements drive past the home of controversial newspaper columnist Damon Blundy eight times in one day? Blundy has been murdered, and the words 'HE IS NO LESS DEAD' daubed on his wall - in red paint, not blood. And, though Blundy was killed with a knife, he was not stabbed. Why?

Nicki, called in for questioning, doesn't have any of the answers police are looking for. Nor can she tell them the truth, because although she is not guilty of murder, she is far from innocent. And the words on the wall are disturbingly familiar to her, if only she could remember where she has heard them before . . .

  • Given her background as a poet, it's hardly surprising that the language in Sophie Hannah's novels is so precise and elegantly phrased. More noteworthy, perhaps, is her sure grasp of psychology - particularly that of her beleaguered heroines, often thrown into chaos by the effects of crime or a catastrophic misjudgment on their own part . . . Hannah's signature character, detective Simon Waterhouse, is on hand to cut the Gordian knot, but the police procedural aspects are less interesting here in comparison to Hannah's adroit manipulation of her carefully delineated cast. - Financial Times
