Publisher's Summary

The thrilling new novel from the author of The Thorn Birds.

One day, one city, 12 murders. The year is 1967 and the world teeters on the brink of nuclear holocaust as the Cold War goes relentlessly on. On a beautiful spring day in the little city of Holloman, Connecticut, chief of detectives Carmine Delmonico walks into the prestigious Chubb University halls to be greeted by a limp corpse clamped in a bear trap, all traces of life drained from it. And this is just the beginning.

Twelve murders have taken place in one day, and suddenly Carmine has more pressing matters on his hands than finding a name for his newborn son. Supported by his detective sergeants, and new team member - the meticulous Delia Carstairs - Delmonico embarks on what look likes an unsolvable mystery. All the murders are different. Are they dealing with one killer or many?

And if 12 murders were not enough, Carmine soon finds himself pitted against the mysterious spy, Ulysses - who is giving local arms giant Cornucopia's military secrets to the Russians. Are the murders and espionage different cases, or are they somehow linked?

    "Beautifully read but hard to listen to in the car"

    The narrator has a lovely expressive voice but the loudness changes, so I missed quite a lot when I was driving.
