From the ashes of mass destruction . . .

Amid the tragic unfolding mayhem of the morning of 9/11, failed Brighton businessman and ne'er-do-well Ronnie Wilson sees the chance of a lifeline: to shed his debts, disappear and reinvent himself in another country.

Loved it

My first Roy Grace novel. Loved all the twists. Thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you.

This is the third 'Roy Grace' novel that I have read and I throughly enjoyed the story. The plot is interesting with many twists and turns and for those who have followed the subplot involving the main character's missing wife there is a nice twist/revelation right at the end of the book which I won't spoil!

Highly recommended for fans of the Roy Grace series

Dead man's footsteps

Why describe something in 2 sentences when you can use 2 or three pages. Found this the most boring of the series so far. At least there were no mediums involved with solving the case. Painfully hard to keep going through about 75% of the book.
