    After a turbulent time, DCI Ryan's life is finally beginning to return to normal, and he's looking forward to spending an uneventful Easter bank holiday weekend with his fiancée. Then, on Good Friday morning, he is called out to a crime scene at one of the largest cemeteries in Newcastle. The body of a redheaded woman has been found buried in a shallow grave, and the killer has given her wings, like an angel. Soon another woman is found at a different cemetery, followed quickly by another.

    Star lost because of the cliffhanger ending..

    This is the forth book in the DCI Ryan Mysteries and I loved it as much as I did the other 3 books, except for one thing which I’ll explain later. Lov..Show More »
