    "A great London mystery with a kinky twist"

    Excellent writing style! Enjoyable and more contemporary crime mystery with Inspector Dalgliesh set in London. A very interesting story which takes you to the secluded and rich area near Hampstead Heath Park in London. The book is rich in characters and action, there is a kinky and unexpected twist in the end before the murderer is uncovered. There are also notes of romance in Inspector Dalgliesh's life which add a nice nuance to subdue the harshness and cynicism.
