--""Booklist""

"While Acton and Doyle, two of Scotland Yard's finest, pursue a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner, Acton's own questionable methods may prove their undoing..."

The victims are all criminals who eluded justice--until they ran afoul of an avenger whose "modus operandi" is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante's identity lies in connecting the cold cases to an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years.""

Meanwhile, Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he's in contact with Acton's nemesis, she fears she's being used in a plot against her husband.""

The stakes are high, and both Doyle and Acton must work independently to outwit the players--before their lives are brought crashing down like a house of cards...
"Cleeland is developing a memorable series that will captivate fans of police procedurals and complicated sleuths such as the protagonist in Carol O'Connell's "Mallory" series."

A homicidal vigilante is on the loose in Cleeland’s diverting but flawed third romantic mystery featuring Scotland Yard’s Kathleen Doyle, newly promoted to detective sergeant, and her husband, Det. Chief Insp. Michael Sinclair, Lord Acton (after 2014’s Murder in Retribution). Meanwhile, an old nemesis of Acton’s seems to be plotting against him from prison, and this kicks Doyle’s protective instincts into high gear. More attention is paid to machinations against the unconventional Acton, and fallout from past events, than the vigilante killer case, so some plot nuances may be hard to follow without having read the previous books. Cleeland writes with a light and witty touch, and there’s never a shortage of clever banter and interesting characters, but some readers may tire of Doyle’s constant self-deprecation in the face of her husband’s well-bred upbringing, in spite of instincts that rarely fail her and a sixth sense that makes her a virtual human lie detector. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (Apr.)
