Where The Devil Can't Go--Anya Lipska,
This review is from: Where the Devil Can't GoThis is a very assured debut crime novel that contains all
the essential ingredients for an enjoyable thriller.
Janusz Kiszka,a Pole who has lived in London for 20 years
is asked by his priest to find a Polish waitress who has
gone missing from the capital.Meanwhile a young woman is
found dead floating in the River Thames,and shortly afterwards,
another women is discovered dead in a bed in a Docklands hotel.
As rookie Detective Constable Natalie Kershaw investigates
these deaths ,her path crosses with Kiszka,and he becomes a
suspect.As they go their own ways with their inquiries
(Kiszka to Poland),their concerns increasingly become connected.
'Where The Devil Can't Go'is an assiduously researched novel that
gives us a glimpse of the London Polish community and the murky
history of 1980's Poland.It is cleverly plotted,and provides two
fully engaging characters in Kershaw and Kiszka.
Excellent .Definitely an author to watch out for.

Your review and the positive comments you have given for Karin Fossum and Anne Holt have persuaded me to give this bargain a try despite there being no press reviews of it. Thanks.
