Publisher's Summary

We uncovered the last of the bodies in the red hour before dusk, as the sun stained the snowcaps of the Tian Shan mountains the colour of dried blood and the spring air turned sharp and cold....

Inspector Akyl Borubaev of Bishkek Murder Squad has been exiled to the far corner of Kyrgystan, but death still haunts him at every turn. Borubaev soon finds himself caught up in a mysterious and gruesome new case: several children's bodies have been found buried together - all tagged with name bands.

In his search for the truth behind the brutal killings, Borubaev hits a wall of silence, with no one to turn to outside his sometime lover, the beautiful undercover agent Saltanat Umarova. When Borubaev himself is framed for his involvement in the production of blood-soaked child pornography, it looks as though things couldn't get any worse.

With the investigation at a dangerous standstill, Borubaev sets out to save his own integrity and to deliver his own savage justice on behalf of the many dead who can't speak for themselves....

The Inspector Borubaev series by Tom Callaghan

The Inspector Borubaev series by Tom Callaghan are in the top tier in my library, parlty because they are well written and partly because they are expertly narrated by Saul Reichlin. While the subject matter can sometimes be a bit gruesome, the characters and the stories are interesting without getting lost in excessive personal background stories. Looking forward to the third in the series.
