A New York Times Bestselling Author
A Richard Jury Mystery

When the body of a French woman washes up on a wild inlet off the Cornish coast, Brian Macalvie, divisional commander with the Devon-Cornwall police, is called in. Meanwhile, inspector Richard Jury is at The Old Success pub, sharing a drink with legendary former CID detective Tom Brownell. In the days following the mysterious slaying of the Parisian tourist, two other murders take place: a man is shot on a Northamptonshire estate, and the body of a holy duster turns up at a cathedral in Devon. Macalvie, Jury, and Bronwell set out to discover whether these three killings, though very different in execution, are connected.
