Blurb; Star investigative reporter Ralph Buchanan’s glory days are behind him. His newspaper has banished him to Pakistan, not knowing the greatest moment of his long career is waiting for him there.
When Simone Jasnin asks him to help expose a grave injustice, he finds himself embroiled in a harrowng tale that began in a dusty settlement in rural Punjab, setting in motion a chain of events that will change the lives of everyone involved.
Seven years later in the city of Lahore, members of a prominent family are being brutally murdered, one by one. The only clue is a hand-carved wooden bangle left at the scene of each crime.
As the list of suspects grows and the tension mounts, Ralph realises the answers might be closer to home than he ever thought possible.
Solving the mystery will put him back on top but at what cost?
Only when the smoke clears will the killing stop and honour be satisfied…
My Review; After reading previous books by Owen this was a must read for me, he never disappoints me. I devoured this in a day and throughally enjoyed it even though some subjects are deep within. A page turner of a read which kept me intrigued and hooked throughout.
Brilliantly written. A story you lose yourself into and learn from, well I did. A different setting and atmosphere with this story compared to his previous stories but it was great, set in Pubjab. There are some dark and disturbing scenes in this book. Owen has tackeld some deep, real, touching and heartbreaking situations and sights in this book. A well deserved four stars from me and highly recommend. I look forward to more by Owen in the future.
