Description

Third in the "memorable series that will captivate fans of police procedurals and complicated sleuths," following Murder in Retribution (Library Journal, starred review).While Acton and Doyle, two of Scotland Yard's finest, pursue a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner, Acton's own questionable methods may prove their undoing . . . The victims are all criminals who eluded justice—until they ran afoul of an avenger whose modus operandi is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante's identity lies in connecting the cold cases to an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years. Meanwhile, Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he's in contact with Acton's nemesis, she fears she's being used in a plot against her husband. The stakes are high, and both Doyle and Acton must work independently to outwit the players—before their lives are brought crashing down like a house of cards . . . "Cleeland writes with a light and witty touch, and there's never a shortage of clever banter and interesting characters."—Publishers WeeklyPraise for the New Scotland Yard Mysteries "It's been a long time since I encountered two characters this charming and engaging. I look forward to more of their adventures." —David Morrell, New York Times–bestselling author of Ruler of the Night "Thrilling . . . will keep you guessing until the very last page!" —Victoria Thompson, USA Today–bestselling author of the Gaslight Mystery series

        February 2, 2015
        A homicidal vigilante is on the loose in Cleeland’s diverting but flawed third romantic mystery featuring Scotland Yard’s Kathleen Doyle, newly promoted to detective sergeant, and her husband, Det. Chief Insp. Michael Sinclair, Lord Acton (after 2014’s Murder in Retribution). Meanwhile, an old nemesis of Acton’s seems to be plotting against him from prison, and this kicks Doyle’s protective instincts into high gear. More attention is paid to machinations against the unconventional Acton, and fallout from past events, than the vigilante killer case, so some plot nuances may be hard to follow without having read the previous books. Cleeland writes with a light and witty touch, and there’s never a shortage of clever banter and interesting characters, but some readers may tire of Doyle’s constant self-deprecation in the face of her husband’s well-bred upbringing, in spite of instincts that rarely fail her and a sixth sense that makes her a virtual human lie detector. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management.

        April 15, 2015
        Detective Sergeant Kathleen Doyle and her husband, Chief Inspector Acton, a peer, have their hands full with a series of murders that appear to be vigilante killings. All of the victims were accused of crimes, but they managed to avoid any penalty until the unknown avenger put a bullet into the back of their heads. As they work determining what connects the cases, Doyle finds a mysterious stranger following her. When he rescues her from an attacker, she begins to wonder who he is and why he is protecting her. Lord Acton must deal with a sexy and unscrupulous reporter who is getting information from someone inside Scotland Yard. Since Acton's work methods are unorthodox, to say the least, his job and reputation could be threatened. This is an entertaining, fast-moving procedural for those who enjoy British cop dramas, and, as a bonus, it delivers genuine insight into the British class system.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2015, American Library Association.)
