Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "He was going to have to terminate Monika, he decided. It was a pity, but there it was... The body has lain buried for years, and has no face and no fingertips. Monika Paniatowski's team have no real leads, but when they discuss the case at her hospital bedside - where she lies paralysed - Monika begins to see possible links with a case she closed four years earlier. Are the two cases connected? Did the first murder make the second almost inevitable? She doesn't know, but she does know that she is being watched by an old enemy who will kill her if he decides there is ever any chance of her sharing her thoughts and information with her team."-- Publisher's description.

    DCI Monika Paniatowski is on her way to testify in a court case when she hears an urgent bulletin that a break-in is in progress in Barrow Village. Since she hates testifying, and since she's close to where the break-in is occurring, it's an easy choice. When she reaches the site, the house being burgled looks quiet and empty, but an ex-cop who lives across the street saw a well-dressed man "casing the place" before the suspected burglar disappeared around the back of the house. But when Monika investigates, she receives a shock—one that will have far-reaching consequences for her and her crack team of detectives. The burglary is never solved, but four years later—after a personal tragedy has taken Monika out of the picture—it's up to her team, led by intrepid Acting DCI Colin Beresford, to untangle what turns out to be a thoroughly bizarre case. Solid writing and a plot full of unexpected twists make this a good read, but it's Paniatowski's diverse, quirky, and talented team that elevates this one to beyond the rank and file of British procedurals.
