Summary

The third cold-case investigation for Enzo Macleod, from the author of the Richard and Judy best seller The Blackhouse.

France.

A death sentence.

Diagnosed with a terminal illness, Enzo Macleod is running out of time to crack the most confounding of unsolved French murders. 

A death threat.

His daughter is nearly killed, Enzo is mugged - and then he is arrested. Someone is trying to destroy his character. Someone is framing him for murder. 

A deathly enemy.

Killers from the past will stop at nothing to halt Enzo, who must use all his forensic skills to solve the case - before they succeed.

Backlight blue

A gripping story line throughout. A clever balance of suspence and intriguing family influx of the protagonist.

excellent again

Well narrated, probably one of the best in the May audible series.Excellent storyline too l with good atmospherics but not dwelling on a thread line for 3 chapters like many similar thrillers do.

disappointing

Love Peter May's book but this one didn't grab me. I got fed up hearing how every woman he came into conract with fell at his feet. The story was a bit hatd to belive and seemed mote about the various love affairs going on than the crime.
