Product Description
 
The latest atmospheric mystery from the author of the Richard and the Judy Book Club choice, The House on Half Moon Street.
The headlines scream warnings about the 'Butcher of Berner Street!' and the journalist behind them Leo Stanhope is secretly thrilled to see the effect his words are having.

Leo's previous work has largely been concentrated on more mundane issues but when an anonymous letter summons him to a club in East London, only for the owner of the club to be found murdered shortly afterwards, Leo sees a story worth pursuing. Not to mention an opportunity to make a name for himself.

Yet the more Leo digs, the stranger the story becomes, taking him from the club to a nearby convent, and into the past of a very unusual woman. But he is not the only one hunting for a killer. And it seems Leo's newspaper reports may have put someone else in grave danger -

'A deeply atmospheric thriller with more twists and turns than the grubby streets of London, and a central character we really care about' HeatThe latest atmospheric mystery from the author of the Richard and the Judy Book Club choice, The House on Half Moon Street.
