Sometimes it’s what you don’t see.

Enzo MacLeod, a Scot teaching in southwest France, has confidently bet that he can crack seven notorious murders described in a book on cold cases. He has, in fact, solved the first two crimes, but the third is far from his mind right now. He’s just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and he’s become the victim of someone who seems intent on destroying his credit and his relationships—and getting him arrested for murder. This is one instance where his Scottish stubbornness might pay off.

Having established a safe house to protect his loved ones, besieged though it may be, Enzo sets to work. Are his personal woes somehow connected to the digging he’s done into the brutal murder of a rent boy in a Paris apartment sixteen years ago? What further remnants of evidence will he find? And can he stay alive long enough to catch the long-hidden killer?

Quotes & Awards

  • “May makes the French settings sharply real, while creating a seething tangle of emotional conflicts between Enzo and the people around him…An unusually compelling ongoing saga.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Simon Vance boldly introduces the listener to Enzo Macleod…Vance uses his natural British voice in the narrative passages but delivers Enzo appropriately with a heavy Scots brogue, and the villain with a pure French accent. Thanks to Vance’s well-rounded reading, the listener is motivated to immediately take in the earlier two titles.”


  • “Vance is superb in this thriller, using excellent accents (Scottish, British, French) and speaking a variety of languages including Spanish and French with conviction. His narration is exciting and emotional as he takes the listeners on a roller-coaster ride filled with danger and revelation. Excellent descriptions of the France setting. However, all is not revealed by the end, promising a sequel to look forward to.”

  • “Ten years as a radio news announcer for the BBC have clearly honed the voice of Vance, who once again proves himself a master of accents…Vance—whose sonorous voice and swift reading style have earned him many awards, including recognition as Booklist’s ‘Voice of Choice’ in 2008—keeps the narrative going at a good clip. He executes the cast of characters with aplomb, from the rolling rumble of a French doctor’s Rs to the brusque brogue of a Scottish contract killer. May’s novels are packed with suspense, and Vance’s energetic reading is a terrific match for this latest breathless tale.”


  • “A cerebral, chilling tale bound to burnish May’s reputation.”
