At the top of White’s most-wanted list is a maniacal magician who leaves his victims in locked, sealed rooms with no way in or out. But it seems that the magician has fled the country… yet copycat murders are popping up all over Leeds. So who is really behind these murders — and what does it have to do with the arrest that earned him a promotion?
Two years ago, White apprehended a ruthless Midlands underworld drug lord and racketeer, Leroy “King” Richards. The King swore he would get even with White, and now he’s escaped from prison. Is he out planning his vengeance — and what could that possibly have to do with the surprise appearance of the sister of Robert Cleghorn, the crazed CIA operative from his first case as a Detective Inspector?
With nothing up his sleeves, and more than his career at stake, will D.I. White’s deductive mojo get it all sorted in time?
“This second book in the DI White Mysteries series is as convincing and thrilling as the first one. Detective Inspector Stewart White is an awesome character, portrayed three-dimensionally. A brilliant book to read again. Highly recommended.” — My Train of Thoughts On… Book Review Blog
