It will be no easy task to fill the shoes of a local legend like DCI Charlie Woodend, the newly promoted Monika Paniatowski tells herself - particularly when he's still a very real presence in Whitebridge - but given a little time, she thinks she can grow into them.

Yet time is the one thing she does not have. On her first day in the new job, a severed female hand is discovered on the riverbank. And not only that, but the killer has already alerted the press. Only hours into the case, she find she can no longer trust her colleagues - or even herself - and the urge to pick up the phone and beg Woodend for help becomes almost irresistible.

    " - hmmm - apparently this is the first novel featuring a secondary character from a different series by this author. I never read the original series and felt at times like I was missing some inside information. However a good solid mystery and would probably read more in this series. "

    " Monica Paniatowski is promoted to Chief Inspector when series protagonist Charlie Woodend retires. The time is the early 1970s & Monica has to contend with sexism from her staff as well as with a grisly set of murders dealing with severed hands. "

    " This was a terrific mystery--tense and with all the clues there once you figure out how to assemble them. I'll certainly read more of these. "
