Summer of Ghosts

Author(s): P. D. Viner


'Beautiful skin.' It begins with a father calling his daughter, but it is not his Pia who answers - it is her killer. He must listen, horrified, to the sounds of his only child being murdered, powerless to intervene, as the killer utters two chilling words. Most men's thoughts would turn to vengeance, but Pia's father is far more resourceful than most. He is not the reserved businessman his daughter believed him to be, but Franco, a notorious London drug lord. And he will call in all his debts to find his daughter's killer, including the one owed to him by Superintendent Tom Bevans. Tom is a man haunted by grief; every unsolved case weighs heavily against his soul. And Tom has heard these two words before.
