While Scotland Yard detective Billy Styles struggles to find a link between these two murders, a strange twist of fate brings former Detective Inspector John Madden into the investigations.

    In Scotland and in England, two men are murdered, shot in the head by what appears to be the same gunman using the same gun. A letter is found in the papers of one of the dead men that suggests the victim was trying to locate retired Scotland Yard inspector John Madden, but Madden, who's starred in a handful of previous novels, says he doesn't know who the man is. Although he'd rather not get involved, Madden agrees to help in the investigation, which kicks into high gear when a third man is murdered, apparently by the same killer. The new Madden novel, set in 1947, delivers all the suspense and twisty plot turns that readers have come to expect from this popular series. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
