Summary

Inspector Christian Tell and his team are called to the scene of a double murder. University lecturer Anne-Marie Karpov lies dead in her home, alongside her student and lover, Henrik.

The crime appears straightforward: Henrik's girlfriend, Rebecca, a woman in therapy for her violent jealousy, had been spotted outside Karpov's flat, and her fingerprints are found on the door. But shortly afterwards, when Rebecca's flat is burgled in a seemingly unconnected attack, Tell begins to wonder whether she might be the victim in a larger game.

It emerges that items on the Red List - artefacts raided from Iraqi museums - were found among Henrik's possessions. As the truth behind Anne-Marie and Henrik's past begins to emerge, the dead woman's ex-husband, Danish gangsters, and Turkish black marketeers all come into the frame.

Tell must unravel a web of hidden motives that spans continents, all the while trying to salvage his stormy relationship with Seja.

Excellent

I came across this audio book looking at other books that Johnathan Kebble had narrated. Based on the one review decided to buy it. I was not disappointed.

Good story brought to life by the narration and I didn't guess who had done it till I was supposed to, always a good sign!

Lets hope there is another.
