Summary
In Belfast, Northern Ireland, memories of the city's troubled history haunt every street corner, but for one tortured soul, the incredible violence in his past is also his most cherished legacy.

Rea Carlisle, daughter of influential Northern Irish politician Graham Carlisle, has inherited a house from an uncle she never knew. It doesn't take her long to clear out the dead man's possessions, but when Rea forces open a locked room, she finds a leather-bound book. Tucked in its pages are fingernails and locks of hair: a catalog of victims.

Horrified, Rea wants to go straight to the police, but her father intervenes--he's worked too hard to have his brother's twisted legacy ruin his promising political career. Thwarted by her father, Rea turns to the only person she can think of: disgraced police inspector Jack Lennon.

Meanwhile, Lennon finds himself the lead suspect in a murder investigation led by one of the force's toughest cops, DCI Serena Flanagan. His implication in the murder, coupled with the story Rea has brought to him, leaves Lennon more than slightly suspicious that the two are part of a grisly conspiracy.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* More than a year after being wounded in a deadly shootout, Belfast DI Jack Lennon is struggling. His request for a medical pension seems doomed, since he killed a cop, albeit a dirty one, and his personal life is slipping. Then an old girlfriend, Rea Carlisle, asks for his help after she finds an album recounting murders in the home of the uncle she hardly knew, a man who just committed suicide; there's also a potentially incriminating photograph of several men, including her uncle and her father, a rising politician. The album has disappeared by the time Rea meets with Lennon, and shortly afterward she is murdered, making him in the eyes of DCI Serena Flanagan the prime suspect. The relentless Flanagan, just diagnosed with breast cancer, and the disreputable Lennon are at odds in a cat-and-mouse game until Lennon uses his long-established contacts to track down the serial killer behind it all. Neville has established a reputation for his superlative Belfast novels in which the city itself functions as a character. Here Belfast is suitably atmospheric, but these events might have occurred anywhere a psychopath gives vent to his urges. Psychological thriller and police procedural blend for a pulse-pounding crime novel from a master of the genre.--Leber, Michele Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Nevilles engrossing fourth mystery featuring Belfast Det. Insp. Jack Lennon (after 2011s Stolen Goods), Rea Carlisle, while cleaning out a house she recently inherited from her uncle, finds a leather-bound book containing detailed descriptions of eight murders, along with fingernails and hair taken from the bodies of victims. Her father, a member of Northern Irelands parliament, the Stormont Assembly, fears for his political career, and forbids Rea to go to the authorities. Instead, Rea seeks unofficial help from Jack Lennon, who was once her lover, unaware that Lennon is facing suspension for shooting a fellow officer in Stolen Goods. Lennons tough new supervisor, Det. Chief Insp. Serena Flanagan, doesnt trust him and tracks his activities closely. While investigating the revelations of the murder diary, as well as an old incriminating photo and a senseless murder, Lennon faces powerful enemies who threaten not just his career but also everything important to him. The action builds to a chilling conclusion. Agent: Nat Sobel, Sobel Weber Associates. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
