When a rare family day out for Detective Chief Inspector Cass 'Red' Rose and her barrister partner Philippa Crichton-Ward QC is cut short by a murder on London's Blackheath, Red's team are faced with the possibility of gang warfare and race riots among the city's troubled youths unless they can sort things. Fast.

With the Super wanting results yesterday, the pressure is on to find the killer. But DCs Barry Taylor and Jez Harris have other things on their mind. As usual. And when the pathologist examining the victim starts pointing out anomalies it's clear a simple murder case is about to open up new mysteries. As if Red didn't have enough problems, the Huntsman is back in town and meeting with the mysterious Queenie. And the kids want to go trick-or-treating. Even the busiest of detectives have to make time for Halloween!

5.0 out of 5 stars And the story goes on 21 Nov. 2012
By The Rat
Format:Kindle Edition
Again another excellent read. This is a short story however all the character's in previous novels had a mention. Although I'm Londoner I certainly appreciated the history lessons regarding the central location point Blackheath and again congratulate the author on her research. Those who have not read the series are certainly missing out and I for one cannot get enough.
