Publisher's Summary

Jack Solomon is a messenger of death. Working in the fractured remains of Yugoslavia, his task is to identify the victims of ethnic cleansing and to tell families that their loved ones are gone. Years of working in the killing fields have desensitised the former London policeman to the horrors of war, but when a truck containing 26 bodies is pulled from a lake, Solomon is unable to walk away from the case.
He sets out to find the only survivor of the massacre, a young girl on the run from the killers. From the brothels of Sarajevo to the high-stakes world of Internet prostitution, Solomon discovers that the killers are closer to home than he thinks....

Top Story

A different topic covered once again in a highly effective way by Stephen Leather. Our hero is a mild mannered investigator who attacks his case with verve, meets more than his fair share of hurdles at every corner and I couldn't put it down. I was wary of a new narrator but I needn't have been: Sean was excellent!

Challenging subject matter

I still find SL's ability to create a story fascinating.
This is a gentle slow burn, with underlying overtones of intrigue and menace. All of his stories have a twist in the tail, but even though I was looking for it "I wasn't expecting that!"
Gentle pace compared to many other of SL's book, but the tension and intrigue build steadily from the start
Running out of his books to listen too now!
