Best selling 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.
Detective Inspector Mark Tartaglia has a number of leads to follow, but he's getting nowhere. Then another body is found, in an old boathouse on the Thames, killed in an identical fashion to Logan. Both men were savagely tortured before they died - 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 stop the killer.

I wasn't sure how good this would be, but I really enjoyed it. The story is well-plotted and gripping and Ric Jerrom did a good job of the narration as always. And how nice to have a straightforward leading detective without drink or marriage problems or other 'quirks'!
At last the return of Elena Forbes! Perfect detective fiction for lovers of Ruth Rendell. Strong plot and characterisation and perfect narration. Highly recommended.
Evil in Return - terrible book and narration
This book is so boring, and is not helped by the
very boring narration
The narrator need a (this is just s phrase) a bullet up his backside to give the book more enthusiasm
I am a wife, Mother and also a teaching assistant. My addiction in life is listening to crime novels. Love Peter James.
This is a really good listen. Keeps you guessing until the end. The reason I've only awarded 4 stars is because I felt there were too many characters, which I find more tricky when listening to a book.
Glad I've discovered this series.
