Description

Theodore Tate returns in the latest thriller from bestselling international crime writer Paul Cleave. Back in the police force and with his wife Bridget out of hospital, Tate looks to be getting his life on track. Meanwhile, his former detective partner Carl Schroder is finding life a little more challenging. The bullet he took in the head six months ago hasn't killed him ...but it's left him with time on his hands. When the body of a convicted rapist is found, obliterated by an oncoming train, and other criminals begin to disappear, it seems somebody might be helping their victims exact revenge. There's a common plea from victims' loved ones- when you find the man who did this, give me five minutes with him. And that's what someone is doing. But then innocent people start to die, and Tate and Schroder find themselves caught up in a dangerous cat and mouse chase that only one of them can win.
