This novel of murder, corruption, and police work takes place in modern-day Slovakia by an author who “seems incapable of writing a dull page” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette).
When the wife of one of Slovakia’s most prominent businessmen is killed in a very public assassination, it looks like the bullets were meant for her husband. But could she have been the primary target?
Cdr. Jana Matinova must push through her own government’s secretiveness and intransigence to discover what connects the murder of Klara Boganova to an anonymous man run down in Paris, a dead Turk with an ice pick in his eye, and an international network of bank accounts linking back to the Second World War, in this crime thriller that is “rich in compelling plot twists” (The Washington Post).
