A security officer is assassinated. A small child grieves for his father. A psychopath commits their first crime....
A frightened Russian woman seeks DCI Hanlon's help in finding her missing husband. Hanlon's not keen on the case. Until she hears a name she recognises only too well. Arkady Belanov, sadistic owner of an exclusive brothel in Oxford is involved.
And when DCI Enver Demirel, her former partner and friend, disappears, Hanlon is determined to solve the case.
Forced into an uneasy alliance with the London underworld, the race to him from the blood-stained hands of the Russian mafia is underway...
Another gripping case for the unstoppable DCI Hanlon. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Lisa Regan and Mark Dawson.
