The Fourth Sacrifice

The Fourth Sacrifice

PETER MAY: OVER 3 MILLION COPIES SOLD
‘A TERRIFIC WRITER’ MARK BILLINGHAM
‘WONDERFULLY COMPELLING’ KATE MOSSE

In the second novel in the China series, Li Yan and Margaret Campbell are reluctantly reunited, on the trail of a killer reenacting a series of gruesome rituals


THE SECOND OPINION

The Chinese police have once more been forced to enlist the services of American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell: this time to investigate a series of four horrific ritual executions that have taken place in Beijing.

THE THIRD DEGREE

Detective Li Yan is determined to discover just how one of the victims in particular, an American diplomat, became caught up in the slaying. And he is arguably even more determined to have nothing to do with Campbell.

THE FOURTH SACRIFICE

The polarity that once attracted Yan and Campbell eventually pulls them back into partnership. Yet the closer they are drawn to the truth, the nearer they come to a killer prepared to use extreme force to conceal it.

LOVED THE FOURTH SACRIFICE? Read the third book in the series, THE KILLING ROOM.
LOVE PETER MAY? Buy his new thriller, A SILENT DEATH.
