[Read by Simon Vance]
As Enzo Macleod takes on the third of seven famous cold cases he has confidently bet he can solve, this is one instance when his Scottish stubbornness might pay off. -- Sometimes it's what you dont see. -- Enzo MacLeod, a Scot teaching in southwest France, has confidently bet that he can crack seven notorious murders described in a book on cold cases. He has, in fact, solved the first two crimes, but the third is far from his mind right now. He's just been diagnosed with a terminal illness, and he's become the victim of someone who seems intent on destroying his credit and his relationships -- and getting him arrested for murder. This is one instance where his Scottish stubbornness might pay off. -- Having established a safe house to protect his loved ones, besieged though it may be, Enzo sets to work. Are his personal woes somehow connected to the digging he's done into the brutal murder of a rent boy in a Paris apartment sixteen years ago? What further remnants of evidence will he find? And can he stay alive long enough to catch the long-hidden killer?

Peter May won the Scottish Young Journalist of the Year Award at the age of 21, and had his first novel published at 26. He then left journalism and became one of Scotland's most successful and prolific television dramatists.

As a mark of their respect for his work, The Chinese Crime Writers' Association made him an honorary member of their Beijing Chapter. He is the only Westerner to receive such an honour. Peter May is married to writer Janice Hally and lives in France.From AudioFile:
One tends to approach this title timidly because of its subtitle. Should one have listened to the first two Enzo Files? No need. Simon Vance boldly introduces the listener to Enzo Macleod, a Scots forensic scientist who has already solved two of seven cold cases written about in a book by a Parisian journalist. In this third (and maybe his last--Macleod has been diagnosed with a terminal illness), Enzo searches for clues to solve the murder of a boy 16 years earlier. Vance uses his natural British voice in the narrative passages but delivers Enzo appropriately with a heavy Scots brogue, and the villain with a pure French accent. Thanks to Vance's well-rounded reading, the listener is motivated to immediately take in the earlier two titles. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
