Description

DCI Monika Paniatowski faces an old enemy – and makes a fatal mistake with the potential to poison her whole career.

Jordan Gough is an important man. He’s the town’s biggest benefactor. He is the proprietor of the Whitebridge Evening Telegraph. He owns the local football team.

He is also, DCI Monika Paniatowski thinks, as bent as a corkscrew – and if she had any evidence, she’d put him away like a shot. A single encounter with him as a young detective sergeant left an impression she’s never forgotten. And neither, she is certain, has he.

So when Jordan calls and demands to speak to Monika – and only Monika – she is on immediate high alert. He claims someone’s trying to kill him, but why has he destroyed the evidence? Why turn for help to an officer he hates?

Certain she’s the target of a twisted practical joke, Monika makes a terrible mistake – one that could destroy everything she holds dear.

The fourteenth DCI Monika Paniatowski mystery is a powerful and dark tale of revenge, secrets and lies, which grips you tight as it reveals twist after stunning twist.

A Career Challenging Case… DCI Monika Paniatowski is back in a case that will challenge her career in, this, the fourteenth in the series. As ever, well written with credible characters, a well plotted storyline and twists aplenty. Gripping from first to last page, opening in explosive fashion and ending the same way, an intriguing and immersive read. Whilst part of a series this can happily be read as a standalone. Top notch.

Thank you Netgalley and Canongate Books, Severn House for the eARC. DCI Monika Paniatowski is in the crosshairs of a sociopath, Jordan Gough, who is the town's biggest benefactor and basically untouchable. He's determined to pay her back for something that happened years ago. When her superior tells her Jordan wants to speak to her face to face, she immediately knows her job will be at stake, no matter what she does; she visits Jordan because she must. This is a great read, with one of the best and creepiest opening chapters I've ever read ... wow! I really like Monika and the fact the story is set in the eighties makes for a welcome change. And even though it's part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone. Also, the ending is just about as creepy as the beginning, which made me fervently wish the author's next book will come fast and feature Monika again. Can't wait to see what's in her future! Highly recommended!
