Crime Scene - Large Print Standing Order Plan

A mixture of fiction and non-fiction titles about murder, murderers, true crime, criminals, crime solvers, forensic science and the victims. Two titles shipped every month.



Post-war Boston is down on its luck and looking for change. In the grip of the worst winter in recent memory‚ no one is very interested in a string of murdered women. But the latest victim was loved. For old friends Cal O’Brien and Dante Cooper‚ hunting the killer of Dante’s sister-in-law gives them both new purpose and some powerful enemies. But they believe in justice and second chances‚ and they’ll see this thing through — whatever the cost.


Customer Reviews

"This is a bone-crunching, gut-wrenching novel that captures the atmosphere of a city in decay and its inhabitants. It delivers noir fiction like we always want it to be."
