Review

At the start of the impressive eighth entry in Edwards?'s Harry Devlin series (/All the Lonely People/, etc.), the Liverpool attorney receives a fake newspaper notice announcing his death on Midsummer?'s Eve. Subsequent threatening messages lead him to take the less-than-a-week deadline seriously. Given Devlin?'s penchant for sticking his nose where it doesn??t belong, many people bear him murderous grudges. Devlin focuses on two suspects??Tom Gunter, a violent thug and a former client, and Aled Borth, a loner angered that the lawyer?'s best efforts didn??t result in a charge of murder being brought against the nursing home where Borth?'s mother died. The addition of a serial killer who severs his victim?'s tongues might have proven too much for the plot to bear in a lesser writer?'s hands, but Edwards skillfully weaves the strands together. While some readers will guess the truth before Devlin does, all will enjoy this twisty whodunit. -- Publishers Weekly (12/24/2007) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
