Clay’s pursuit of the killers, who call themselves the First Born and the Angel of Destruction, maintains interest and the medieval art theme is engaging, but the book would have benefited from deeper character development of the detectives.

Synopsis

Leonard Lawson was a respected professor of medieval art. He lived a quiet life in a suburb of Liverpool with his grown-up daughter. As far as anyone knew, he had no enemies. Louise Lawson watched her father die. Before she blacked out, she saw his body mutilated and deformed, twisted into a hellish parody of the artworks he loved. Investigating a killer bringing medieval horror to Merseyside, DCI Eve Clay must overcome her own demons to unpick the dark symbolism of the crime scene. A 50-year silence has been broken—with a message written in blood.
