Just as pathologist Margaret Campbell finds an insight into the killer’s sick signature, Li receives a letter from the killer, betraying his cruel intentions.

The plot twists and turns like the tail of a Chinese dragon. A cracking good read ... Highly recommended
Scots Magazine
The characters here are vivid and contrasting, and they grow and develop in a way usually only found in literary novels, and the plotting and evocation of atmosphere as professional as they come. An excellent series
Kirkus Reviews
Truly the best of May's series so far, this is not to be missed
