Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: "Belfast, Northern Ireland: Rea Carlisle has inherited a house from an uncle she never knew. It doesn't take her long to clear out the dead man's remaining possessions, but one room remains stubbornly locked. When Rea finally forces it open, she discovers inside a chair, a table--and a leather-bound book, its pages filled with locks of hair, fingernails: a catalogue of victims. Horrified, Rea wants to go straight to the police but her family intervenes, fearing that scandal will mar her politician father's public image. Rea turns to the only person she can think of: disgraced police inspector Jack Lennon. He is facing suspension from the force and his new supervisor, DCI Serena Flanagan, is the toughest cop he's ever met. But a gruesome murder brings the dead man's terrifying journal to the top of the Belfast police's priority list"--

    *Starred Review* More than a year after being wounded in a deadly shootout, Belfast DI Jack Lennon is struggling. His request for a medical pension seems doomed, since he killed a cop, albeit a dirty one, and his personal life is slipping. Then an old girlfriend, Rea Carlisle, asks for his help after she finds an album recounting murders in the home of the uncle she hardly knew, a man who just committed suicide; there's also a potentially incriminating photograph of several men, including her uncle and her father, a rising politician. The album has disappeared by the time Rea meets with Lennon, and shortly afterward she is murdered, making him—in the eyes of DCI Serena Flanagan—the prime suspect. The relentless Flanagan, just diagnosed with breast cancer, and the disreputable Lennon are at odds in a cat-and-mouse game until Lennon uses his long-established contacts to track down the serial killer behind it all. Neville has established a reputation for his superlative Belfast novels in which the city itself functions as a character. Here Belfast is suitably atmospheric, but these events might have occurred anywhere a psychopath gives vent to his urges. Psychological thriller and police procedural blend for a pulse-pounding crime novel from a master of the genre. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
