The third Denton mystery centres on political intrigue, terrorism 1900s-style and the beginnings of the British Secret Intelligence Organisation, as London becomes a hotbed of anarchist plotting.

Denton is drawn into a complex web of murder and revenge when a mysterious Polish woman is found dead in the house adjoining his - the one occupied by his lover, Janet Stryker - and while the police remain baffled, he begins to suspect she is the victim of some sort of political conspiracy. But involving himself in the life and death of Lydia Alken will prove more dangerous than he could have imagined, as Denton himself falls victim to the fledgling British Intelligence Service and discovers exactly what the price of freedom really is, while the real story of Lydia Alken's murder provides the biggest shock of all.

About the Author:

Kenneth Cameron is the author of three novels featuring Denton, THE FRIGHTENED MAN, THE BOHEMIAN GIRL and THE SECOND WOMAN as well as of plays staged in Britain and the US, and the award-winning Africa on Film: Beyond Black and White. He lives part of the year in northern New York State and part in the southern US.

Review:

A gripping page-turner, Cameron's novel combines a devilishly clever plot, enigmatic characters, a foreboding atmosphere and a shocking finale. A top pick for all crime collections―BOOKLIST

Ingenious... Interesting and well written, this is highly recommended―LITERARY REVIEW

Filled with rich period detail, a gritty London comes alive in this satisfying novel, which contains a thoughtful exploration of the relationship among love, sex, and perversion, and between violence and self-loathing―BOSTON GLOBE

Denton, the unconventional hero of THE FRIGHTENED MAN, socialises with the Bohemian crowd in their fashionable haunts...but is equally at home walking the dangerous streets of London's East End. He is well worth encountering again―DAILY TELEGRAPH
