A man is brutally murdered and his wife is left a cryptic message from him. What does it mean and who murdered him? DS Cody is on the case but is he really up to the job. Soon hes got his own demons to contend with, could it all be connected?
Wow this was very dark and pretty graphic in places. The background story of Cody in particular. The plot is interesting and the story develops well. The ending was very clever leaving me wanting more. I'm becoming a bit of a fan of David Jackson's books. This is the second I've read and enjoyed. I found the moral questions in this really interesting and thought provoking.
Cody is a bit of a mess and makes some questionable judgement calls but you can understand why he does everything he does.
