About this product
- Description[Rennie Airth's] meticulously detailed procedural mysteries are beautifully written . . . well worth reading, and rereading. --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review Rennie Airth's The Death of Kings will be available from Viking in January 2017. On a freezing London night in 1944, Rosa Novak is brutally murdered during a blackout. Scotland Yard suspects the young Polish refugee was the victim of a random act of violence and might have dropped the case if former police investigator John Madden hadn't been her employer. Madden feels he owes it to Rosa to find her killer and pushes the investigation, uncovering her connection to a murdered Parisian furrier, a member of the Resistance, and a stolen cache of diamonds. Delivering the atmospheric writing and compelling characters that have already established Rennie Airth as a master of suspense as well as style, this long-awaited third installment in the John Madden series is historical crime writing at its best.
