By Anthea Cohen
Disquieting and hypnotic, in the tradition of Patricia Highsmith
When Agnes Turner is witness to a rape, she goes for the assailant with a knife - with fatal consequences. The victim repays Agnes by blackmailing her, and when Agnes refuses her demands she kidnaps her beloved Jack Russell terrier. Agnes faces the prospect of committing yet another crime to secure the safe return of her dog.
But then another death occurs . . .
In this, the 18th in the Agnes Turner mysteries, Anthea Cohen remains the mistress of the icy touch.
Anthea Cohen, SRN, worked as a hospital sister and private nurse. A columnist for the Nursing Mirror and regular contributor to World Medicine, she has written eighteen Agnes Turner novels, among other work.
