An American actress arrives in London to find herself the target of a ruthless assassin in this compelling standalone thriller.
Actress Adelaide Banks is swapping her native New York for London to spend Christmas with her widowed Aunt Rose. Rose wrote in her note that she was off to Paris for a few days and would be back in time for Addy’s arrival. But when Addy reaches Rose’s Knightsbridge address, no one’s home, and she has two unexpected callers . . .
Where is Rose, and what has she got herself entangled in? Dragged into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse on the snowy streets of London, Addy finds herself navigating a dark underworld of ruthless assassins, rogue agents and international crime. Can she survive long enough to uncover the truth?
“A fairly straightforward puzzler becomes utterly absorbing and psychologically intriguing by virtue of the characters’ personalities and unusual motivations. One can’t help but compare Madden to other chief inspectors like Armand Gemache in Louise Penny’s Three Pine mysteries or Reginald Wexford in the series by Ruth Rendell”
