Editor reviews

A young girl is beaten, raped, and stabbed prior to providing a whispered, enigmatic hint identifying her killer and setting in motion another of Crime Writer Association Silver Dagger winner Gwendoline Butler’s masterfully plotted police procedurals featuring Chief Commander John Coffin. Nigel Carrington highlights the increasing tension as anonymous notes threaten vengeance, and first one, then another, and another fall victim to a killer (or killers) ravaging the gentrifying neighborhood of Dockside, London. A family is destroyed. A neighborhood is terrorized and, again, Coffin is forced to struggle to cast light on the darkest shade in the range of human psychology.
