I realise this isn't really going to come as a surprise because my list of authors I simply cannot resist is actually, I'm starting to realise, ridiculously long. Still Elena Forbes got me with her first book DIE WITH ME, and certainly didn't change my mind with the second OUR LADY OF PAIN, so the third book EVIL IN RETURN was a given as soon as it was available.
From the Blurb:
Bestselling novelist Joe Logan walks out into a hot summer's evening in central London. The next day his body is found dumped in a disused Victorian crypt at the Brompton Cemetry. It was no ordinary murder - he'd been tied up, shot and castrated.
Bestselling novelist Joe Logan walks out into a hot summer's evening in central London. The next day his body is found dumped in a disused Victorian crypt at the Brompton Cemetery. He has been tied up, shot, and castrated. The killing has the hallmarks of a professional hit. But what had Logan done to deserve such a brutal end?
Detective Mark Tartaglia is convinced that Logan's personal life holds the key, but unravelling the victim's recent past proves difficult. Then the body of a second man is found in an old boathouse on the Thames -- killed in an identical fashion to Logan. A vicious and methodical killer is at work, but what does he want and how does he lure his victims to their death? If Tartaglia can find the link between the two dead men maybe he can find the killer before he strikes again.
