London, June 1914.
A young man is mauled to death at London Zoo after deliberately climbing into the bear pit. Shortly afterwards, another young man leaps to his death from the notorious Suicide Bridge. Two seemingly unconnected deaths – and yet there are similarities.
Following a third attempted suicide, Detective Inspector Silas Quinn knows he must uncover the link between the three men if he is to discover what caused them to take their own lives. The one tangible piece of evidence is a card found in each of the victims’ possession, depicting a crudely-drawn red hand.
What does it signify? To find the answers, Quinn must revisit his own dark past. But can he keep his sanity in the process …?
I absolutely loved this book and can’t believe it has taken me so long to find this author!
This book was very well written, full of detail, fantastic characters and it has a brilliant plot – there wasn’t anything in the book that I didn’t dislike!
It was a brilliant read and I have to give it 5 stars!! Superb story!!
