From Anne Cleeland comes a captivating new
mystery series following the perilous exploits of two Scotland Yard detectives
as they track down London’s most elusive killers.
First-year detective Kathleen
Doyle is a plucky Irish redhead of humble origins and modest means. Chief
Inspector Michael Acton is her antithesis: a British lord turned cop. He’s
tall, handsome, and enigmatic—to a fault. He also has a knack for solving London’s
most high-profile crimes. Acton selects Doyle out of the newbie squad to
partner with him on a series of investigations because she always knows when
someone is lying—a trait that comes in handy when interviewing suspects and
Acton and Doyle are sent to investigate the murder of a trainer at a
racetrack, and soon new killings related to the first start unfolding, dragging
the two investigators into ever more perilous situations. But the real danger
is the unlikely attachment that develops between the ultrareserved,
aristocratic chief inspector and his spirited, working-class sidekick … a
relationship that will raise plenty of eyebrows—and hackles—among their
colleagues at the Yard.
