A notice announcing that Harry Devlin died suddenly on Midsummer's Eve arrives at the office of his law firm one June day. His partner Jim Crusoe treats the message as a joke, but Harry isn't so sure-especially as Midsummer's Eve is less than a week away. From that moment on, his world starts to fall apart. Who is his unknown enemy?

Meanwhile, young women are being murdered in Harry's home city of Liverpool. When a friend who has asked to meet him becomes the latest victim, Harry is dragged into the investigation and becomes a suspect. "Edwards...plots densely but lucidly and includes a surprisingly logical killer.... -Kirkus Reviews

Martin Edwards has published 12 novels: eight featuring Harry Devlin and three Lake District Mysteries. He has twice been short-listed for a CWA Dagger. www.martinedwardsbooks.com

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)
