From the winner of Britian’s prestigious Diamond Dagger Award, comes a beautifully written, multilayered psychological thriller

Three times Yorkshire policeman Peter Pascoe has wrongly accused ex-con Franny Roote of a crime, only to have Roote walk free. Now Roote is sending out strange and threatening letters and Pascoe fears there is worse to come. This time he’s determined to get his man.

In a brilliant novel of psychological suspense, acclaimed author Reginald Hill sets up a battle of wills between determined cops and an ingenious villain. Hill is known as a master of complex plotting, deep characterization, sly humor, and wordplay, and those qualities are amply evident in this stunning novel.
