“Hello, stranger,” a woman said. “Remember me?”

A wealthy old widow is discovered, savagely battered, dead on her kitchen floor. DCI David Fyfe is assigned to the case, and though it seems to be open and shut—a man clutching the murder weapon was found lying unconscious in the old woman’s front porch—something doesn’t seem right.

If there’s one thing that Fyfe has learned in his rocky career in law enforcement, it’s that things are not always as they seem. Otherwise, why has Angela, a beautiful woman who was a suspect in a murder Fyfe investigated a few years ago—and who is the keeper of one of Fyfe’s big secrets—turned up again?

The combination of page-turning action, William Paul’s sharp-edged writing, and the dynamic, unpredictable DCI Fyfe power this third entry in a provocative series.

Praise for the DCI David Fyfe series


'High-voltage goings-on, packed with steamy sex [and] mixed motives . . . Fyfe’s first procedural will grab the reader’s attention and hold it to the finish.' Kirkus Review

'A reminder that Scottish crime is rougher, tougher, and somehow more jaunty than the kind that’s celebrated down south.' Philip Oakes, Literary Review

‘Fyfe's engrossing ruminations on the human condition [means] readers will find themselves absorbed from beginning to end’ Booklist


William Paul is a journalist in Edinburgh, where he lives with his wife and their two sons. He has also authored a number of other books, including Seasons of Revenge and The Lion Rampant.
