______________________

After The Puppet Show, a new storm is coming . . .

Jared Keaton, chef to the stars. Charming. Charismatic. Psychopath . . . He's currently serving a life sentence for the brutal murder of his daughter, Elizabeth. Her body was never found and Keaton was convicted largely on the testimony of Detective Sergeant Washington Poe.

So when a young woman staggers into a remote police station with irrefutable evidence that she is Elizabeth Keaton, Poe finds himself on the wrong end of an investigation, one that could cost him much more than his career.

Helped by the only person he trusts, the brilliant but socially awkward Tilly Bradshaw, Poe races to answer the only question that matters: how can someone be both dead and alive at the same time?

And then Elizabeth goes missing again - and all paths of investigation lead back to Poe.

The gripping new thriller in the Washington Poe series from M. W. Craven, winner of the CWA Gold Dagger Award for best crime novel of 2019.

*Longlisted for the Crime Writers Association Gold Dagger 2020*

Excellent follow up.

Was a huge fan of Craven’s original work “The Puppet Show” and eagerly awaited this follow up. While I felt the original had a more intricate and detailed story, there is something fresh and exceptional in the way that Craven writes that continues to shine through in this work. The characters are well fleshed out, have a real sense of development and the story is compelling and engaging. I could not recommend this more highly and await book 3 with bated breath.
