John Madden, who debuted in River
of Darkness, returns in a gripping post–World War II murder mystery.
On a quiet afternoon in
1947, retired bank manager Oswald Gibson is shot in the head while fishing. In
Scotland, a respectable family doctor is killed in the same manner—and
with the same gun. What is the connection? Scotland Yard’s Detective Inspector
Billy Styles and local detective Vic Chivers are baffled until a letter from Gibson
is discovered that might shed some light on the case—a letter concerning former
Scotland Yard detective John Madden. Despite Madden’s legendary memory, he has
no recollection of meeting Gibson or any idea of what their relationship might
have been. Madden is happily retired from police work but agrees to help his
former protégé. The clues they uncover only deepen the mystery. When
a third man is killed in a similar fashion, Madden and Styles find themselves
in a race against time to find the killer before another man ends up dead.
A smart, intricately
plotted mystery, this is the fourth title in the critically acclaimed and much-loved John Madden series. Download and start listening now!
