Product description

Review

'Superior crime fiction set in Iceland... this is a well constructed, well written and satisfying police procedural' - The Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

In British author Bates' solid follow-up to 2010's Frozen Assets, Gunnhildur 'Gunna' Gisladottir, now a sergeant with the Serious Crime Unit in Reykjavik, Iceland, looks into the murder of minor celebrity Svana Geirs, who hosted a TV fitness show and was intimately involved with various athletes and business figures...Bates, who lived ten years in Iceland...manages to engage the reader as Gunna explores the prominent men who knew Svana and deals with Magnusson's carnage.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

More routine than Gunna's debut, but still required reading for anyone who wants a sense of how calamitous Iceland's meltdown was-and what just might be in store for American police procedurals next.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

Porter is undaunted by the names of local people and places and smoothly transitions between the many characters. The complex mystery is centered on what appears to be separate crimes: the murder of a beautiful woman and an escaped convict's assaults on his former associates. Porter moves the dialogue along quickly as the skillful negotiations of Gunna and her team reveal that the case is not a simple murder and that its political overtones must be reckoned with.

-- "AudioFile"

Twisty, complex, and dark.

-- "Booklist" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
