A US marshal and her prisoner are gunned down outside of London’s Heathrow Airport just as the prisoner is to testify against the head of a violent animal-rights group. Leeds Detective Sergeant Keen Dunliffe doesn’t seem like the right man for the case, except that he has the undercover experience and knowledge of Yorkshire, the terrorists’ backyard. He’s ordered to head up a sting operation with Rachel Colver, an inexperienced police constable, who may have personal ties that will help her infiltrate the animal-rights group. However, Keen is worried about a plan that puts Rachel in obvious peril. As the two hunker down to work the case from the inside, brutal extremists and police politics collide, involving murder, intimidation, smuggling, and blackmail with lethal consequences.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Detective Sergeant Keen Dunliffe is having a heck of a time in this eagerly awaited sequel to Lee Wood’s first British police procedural. Thank goodness he has such an able narrator in Ralph Cosham to give him voice…Cosham’s thoughtful portrayals of the book’s many characters, from Yorkshire coppers to London ladies, offer insight and enjoyment in equal measure. But it’s his pacing that is most remarkable. As the tension grows, Cosham’s narration builds from ‘bored cop relaxed’ to panic without ever overdoing it. A terrific job.” AudioFile
“This is a solid, well-crafted procedural in which the Yorkshire setting is nearly as much a character as Keen or his fat cat, Thomas. The dark and unsettling plot is riveting and taut, perfectly paced to keep readers turning the pages, right to the end.” Booklist
“Wood, who made her bones in science fiction, has now produced two exemplary police procedurals that are authentic and appealingly character-driven.” Kirkus Reviews
