"Edwards skillfully weaves the strands together [in] this twisty whodunit." -Publishers Weekly "Edwards, ever the professional, plots densely but lucidly and includes a surprisingly logical killer." -Kirkus Reviews A notice announcing that Harry Devlin died suddenly on Midsummer's Eve arrives at the office of his law firm one June day. Harry isn't happy to read it: Midsummer's Eve is less than a week away. His partner Jim Crusoe treats the message as a joke, but Harry isn't so sure. Meanwhile, young women are being murdered in Harry's home city of Liverpool. When a friend who has asked to meet him becomes the latest victim, Harry becomes a suspect. He's soon fighting for survival on two fronts. Even as he unravels the shocking secret behind the murders, Harry must discover and confront the enemy who wants him dead if he is to live to see Midsummer's Day. This atmospheric, fast-moving and intricate thriller features Harry Devlin, one of modern crime fiction's most memorable amateur detectives, in the deadliest case of his life. Martin Edwards has published 12 novels: eight featuring Harry Devlin and three Lake District Mysteries. He has twice been short-listed for a CWA Dagger and The Coffin Trail was short-listed for the Theakston's prize for best crime novel of 2006. www.martinedwardsbooks.com

About the Author:

The first of Martins eight novels, All the Lonely People, was nominated for the CWAs John Creasey Memorial Dagger and introduced lawyer Harry Devlin. Martin has also written a stand-alone, Take My Breath Away, and completed The Lazarus Widow by the late Bill Knox. His short stories are collected in Where Do You Find Your Ideas? and he has edited 14 anthologies. His ten non-fiction books include Urge to Kill, a study of homicide investigation. He has contributed many essays to reference books such as The Oxford Companion to Crime and Mystery Writing. The author lives in Great Britain.

From Publishers Weekly:

At the start of the impressive eighth entry in Edwards's Harry Devlin series (All the Lonely People, etc.), the Liverpool attorney receives a fake newspaper notice announcing his death on Midsummer's Eve. Subsequent threatening messages lead him to take the less-than-a-week deadline seriously. Given Devlin's penchant for sticking his nose where it doesn't belong, many people bear him murderous grudges. Devlin focuses on two suspects—Tom Gunter, a violent thug and a former client, and Aled Borth, a loner angered that the lawyer's best efforts didn't result in a charge of murder being brought against the nursing home where Borth's mother died. The addition of a serial killer who severs his victim's tongues might have proven too much for the plot to bear in a lesser writer's hands, but Edwards skillfully weaves the strands together. While some readers will guess the truth before Devlin does, all will enjoy this twisty whodunit. (Apr.)

Book Description Poisoned Pen Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 250 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.5in. x 1.0in.No one expects to read their own obituary. Liverpool lawyer Harry Devlin never knew five short lines could be so menacing - someone wants him dead and he has only seven days to find out who. The terse notice of his death is out of place amid the hustle and bustle of Harrys posh office off the Strand, but soon mysterious threats lurk in every familiar corner of Liverpool for the wary lawyer. The city quickly becomes a capital of crime as well as culture, when a mutilated female corpse washes up on the Waterloo Beach and another soon after. A loose serial killer does no good for Harrys already morbidly preoccupied state, but between the elegant coroner Ceri Hussain and the endearing cleaner Gina he finds enough distraction. However, not all distractions in lovely packages are good. Juliet May, ex-wife of gangster Casper May and Harrys former lover, sweeps back into the lawyers life with unforeseen consequences.
