Cold Malice

Cold Malice

Reykjavík detective Gunnhildur Gísladóttir tries not to believe in ghosts. But when Helgi, one of her team is certain he’s seen a man who had been declared dead more than fifteen years ago, she reluctantly gives him some unofficial leeway to look into it.

Has the not-so-dead man returned from the grave to settle old scores, or has he just decided to take a last look around his old haunts?

Either way, there are people who have nursed grudges for years, hoping for a reckoning one day. Even the rumour of his being alive and kicking is enough to spark a storm of fury and revenge, with Gunnhildur and Helgi caught up in the middle of it.

Praise for Quentin Bates:

‘A great read – leaves you craving the next installment’ – Yrsa Sigurðardóttir

‘A meticulously constructed thriller, peopled with exceptionally convincing characters and shot through with black humour. Frozen Out is as chilling as an Icelandic winter‘ – S.J. Bolton

‘Superior crime fiction set in Iceland… this is a well constructed, well written and satisfying police procedural’ – The Times on Cold Comfort

‘[A] crackling fiction debut … palpable authenticity‘ – Publishers Weekly on Frozen Out
