In this second of the Perry Webster trilogy, two years after solving the murder of his fiancée, Perry is drawn reluctantly into investigating the death of a female student at York University by his friendship with Matt Harper, the department head and the police’s prime suspect. Mackenzie West, the murdered girl, was one of the stars of the University; attractive, intelligent, sharp witted in debate and an Olympics prospect in the sport of Fencing but as Perry investigates, he unearths an altogether shadier side to her past life which could hold the key to her murder. Some of the colourful characters from Blonde, the first novel in the trilogy, re-emerge in this taut tale of confounded hope alongside a host of new individuals from the worlds of academia, sport and the high and low strata of Yorkshire society. Perry’s stumbling in the dark trips a sequence of cause and effect which imperils the life of his best friend as well his own and results in a hair-raising final encounter with the murderer.
