From one of Britain’s leading crime writers — Flesh and Blood, Ash and Bone — comes his new book — sure
to go straight to the top of the bestseller lists.

Will’s first thought when he saw the man’s face: it was like a glove that had been pulled inside out.

When police detective Will Grayson and his partner, Helen Walker are called upon to investigate the violent death of Stephen Bryan, a gay Cambridge academic, their first thoughts are of an ill-judged sexual encounter, of rough trade gone wrong.

But as their investigation widens, their attention focuses on the biography Bryan was writing about the life and death of fifties film star, Stella Leonard, whose death from drowning, when the car she was driving skidded mysteriously off a lonely Fenland road, uncannily echoed the climax of her most notorious film, Shattered Glass.

With Bryan’s journalist sister egging them on, and bringing herself into mortal danger as she conducts her own investigation, Will and Helen gradually peel away the secrets of a family blighted by a lust for wealth and power and its own perverted sexuality.

From the Hardcover edition.

Stephen Bryan is found murdered in his bathroom. Will Grayson and Helen Walker, police detectives investigating the case assume that his death is the result of an ill-judged sexual encounter. But doubts are soon raised. Could the murder be connected to a biography he was writing on the life and mysterious death of screen legend, Stella Leonard?
