Mystery Large Print Edition An intense, tightly woven police procedural. Publishers Weekly Palmer s trademark blend of world-weary cynicism mixed with a healthy dollop of humor gives this straightforward procedural its zip. Booklist The death of a tabloid journalist puts Inspector Jacko Jackson on the trail of a mysterious doctor who may be carrying on the horrific legacy of his Nazi father by conducting medical experiments on humans. When the man who holds the key to the puzzle is found hanged in his prison cell taking the dark secrets of the past to his grave, Jacko is left with only a barely comprehensible page of notes and a boozer s memory as clues. It s a desperate race against time to save the life of the diabolical doctor s latest patient.
