Some cases are better left swept under the rug…

Forensics ace Enzo Macleod, a Scot who’s been in France for many years, has rashly boasted he could solve seven classic cold cases written up in a bestselling book. He successfully solved the first three and now is facing the fourth. A promise made to a dying man leads Macleod to the man’s study, which has been preserved for nearly twenty years by his heir. The dead man had left several clues there designed to reveal his killer’s identity to his son, but, ironically, the son died soon after the father. The case takes Enzo to a tiny island off the coast of Brittany in France, where he must confront the hostility of locals who have no desire to see the infamous murder back in the headlines. An attractive widow, a man charged but acquitted of the murder, a crime scene frozen in time, and a collection of impenetrable messages make this one of Macleod’s most difficult cases.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Excellent…With its intricate plot, compelling characters, and bombshell denouement, this unsettling Enzo Files installment is a must-read.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Simon Vance narrates the fourth in the Enzo Files series. Vance brings the character of Scots forensics expert Enzo McLeod to life as he investigates a twenty-year-old murder that took place on an island off the coast of northern France. Vance’s well-paced narration ensures that even detailed descriptions never become boring. The story holds one’s attention right through to the end as Vance portrays the characters, including surly islanders and an attractive widow, with ease. As a result of his sympathetic reading, listeners grow fond of the main characters and share in McLeod’s sadness as the plot reaches its conclusion.”

    AudioFile

  • “The author of the much acclaimed China Thrillers surpasses himself here in misdirection, placing clues in plain sight and leaving the reader anticipating the fifth entry in this outstanding series.”

    Library Journal

  • “As part of a bet with his son-in-law to solve seven cold cases, Enzo Macleod has set out to close this case…Like the case, this mystery harkens back to the classic age of mystery writing with a narrow set of characters and a circumscribed crime scene. Peter May’s story will draw you in as you try to unravel the clues along with Macleod. Simon Vance does a good job of capturing the characters. Take this story on a trip and the miles will disappear before you know it.”
