Publisher's Summary

IN THE RED-HOT FINALE TO PETER MAY'S CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED ENZO FILES, ENZO MACLEOD WILL FACE HIS MOST CHALLENGING COLD CASE YET.

"ENDS MACLEOD'S QUEST WITH A FLOURISH." (MARILYN STASIO, THE NEW YORK TIMES)

"A SATISFYING SURPRISE." (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (STARRED REVIEW)

"THE LAST SHALL BE BEST." (KIRKUS REVIEWS)

Western France, 1989
A weeping killer deposits the unconscious body of 20-year-old Lucie Martin, her head wrapped in a blue plastic bag, into the waters of a picturesque lake.

Lot-et-Garonne, 2003
Fourteen years later, a summer heat wave parches the countryside, killing trees and bushes and drying out streams. In the scorched mud and desiccated slime of the lake, a fisherman finds a skeleton wearing a bag over its skull.

Paris, October 2011
In an elegant apartment in Paris, forensic expert Enzo Macleod, now 56 years old, pores over the scant evidence of the sixth and final cold case he has been challenged to solve. The most obvious suspect is Régis Blanc, a former pimp already imprisoned for the murders of three sex workers, who may have been Lucie's lover in the months before her disappearance. But Régis has a solid alibi, and Enzo has a feeling the real explanation might be more complicated. In taking on this old and seemingly impossible-to-crack case, Enzo puts everything and everyone he holds dear in terrible danger - and in ways even he never could have imagined.

Critic Reviews

"Enzo is an irascible, complex protagonist, with more than his share of personal loss, often masked by bravado. This is the sixth and final book in May's gripping series - and one of the best." (Library Journal)

"The last book in this series, and it ends Macleod's quest with a flourish."(Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times)

"Cast Iron is shot through with the dark legacy of the past." (The Guardian)
