There’s a killer on the loose on the streets of Swansea and they are leaving clues.
Detective Inspector Gus Reid and his team have a gruesome murder on their hands but there are no suspects and no obvious motive. All they have to go on is a series of literary quotations that appear like graffiti on walls throughout the city.
Can Gus’ daughter, an expert in Renaissance literature, help solve the crime? Or will she become the next victim?
The killer believes they are smarter than the police detectives. But are they too clever for their own good?
Welsh crime writing is at the cutting edge of crime fiction at the moment. Now there is a new name to add to the impressive list of Welsh crime writers. Lloyd Rees’ first thriller is a real page-turner.
- ‘A highly intelligent and satisfying story. Lloyd Rees’s sharp eye and subtle characterisation are a joy. This beautifully written novel captures the edgy drabness of a provincial city, left fearful and confused by an unexpected murder.’ Geoff Brookes
- ‘Gripping and frightening in equal measure.’ – Reader review
