Description

Two of Scotland Yard's finest—who happen to be married—navigate darkest London to solve a series of murders that blur every line between right and wrong. Chief Inspector Michael Sinclair, also known as Lord Acton, and rookie detective Kathleen Doyle ruffle more than a few feathers at CID Headquarters when their relationship comes to light. But office politics quickly become trivial amid a rash of underworld murders. As the body count climbs, Doyle uncovers a vicious war over lucrative turf between the Russian mafia and an Irish terrorist group. But their acts of revenge are almost too much for Scotland Yard to keep up with—and when Acton seems unusually troubled by the crimes, Doyle wonders what sparked the conflict in the first place. Perhaps there's nothing more to it than under-the-table business dealings gone awry. Or perhaps a single act of vigilante justice ignited a brutal battle. As Doyle and Acton fight not to become the next victims, they'll find that the truth may be best left unspoken, and retribution may be best left to fate...

"Romantic suspense fans will welcome Cleeland's second New Scotland Yard mystery...Distinctive characters, including Aiki, a friendly Rwandan cab driver who acts as Doyle's self-appointed protector, compliment the finely wrought, highly charged plot."—Publishers Weekly

        Romantic suspense fans will welcome Cleeland’s second New Scotland Yard mystery (after 2013’s Murder in Thrall). The beguiling Det. Constable Kathleen Doyle must adjust to life as a new bride while fighting hostility and gossip about her sudden marriage to the Yard’s most eligible bachelor and top cop, Det. Chief Insp. Michael Acton. Members of Acton’s aristocratic family and his closest friends regard the nuptials with shock and dismay. To cope, Doyle buries herself in work, investigating two homicides that appear to be related to turf battles in London between crime syndicates from Russia and Ireland. As she zeroes in on possible suspects, she becomes increasingly ill and fears someone is out to do her harm. Distinctive characters, including Aiki, a friendly Rwandan cab driver who acts as Doyle’s self-appointed protector, compliment the finely wrought, highly charged plot. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.
