“Witty with a dry sense of humor . . . finely plotted . . . complex and funny.” —RT Book Reviews

Multi Award-Winning Author

No case is too curious for Arthur Bryant and John May, London’s most ingenious detectives. But with their beloved city engulfed in turmoil, they’ll have to work fast to hold a sinister killer’s feet to the fire.

In the week before Guy Fawkes Night, London’s peaceful streets break out in sudden unrest. Enraged by a scandal involving a corrupt financier accused of insider trading, demonstrators are rioting outside the Findersbury Private Bank, chanting, marching, and growing violent. But when someone hurls a Molotov cocktail at the bank’s front door, killing a homeless man on its steps, Bryant, May, and the rest of the Peculiar Crimes Unit is called in. Is this an act of protest gone terribly wrong? Or a devious, premeditated murder?

Their investigation heats up when a second victim is reported dead in similar fiery circumstances. May discovers the latest victim has ties to the troubled bank, and Bryant refuses to believe this is mere coincidence. As the riots grow more intense and the body count climbs, Bryant and May hunt for a killer who’s adopting incendiary methods of execution, on a snaking trail of clues with roots in London’s history of rebellion, anarchy, and harsh justice. Now, they’ll have to throw themselves in the line of fire before the entire investigation goes up in smoke.

Now forcibly detained in his home and desperate, the town’s mayor risks his life to send a covert message to the only person the world knows to have defeated Pete Zendel–the one who put him in prison in the first place–Ruby Masters. Their last hope.

Ruby “Red” Masters is glad to be living a normal life again. She busily prepares for her upcoming wedding to the love of her life, Sergeant Robert Towers. Until she receives an SOS message from the mayor of Snowy Peaks. Ruby and Robert must face the possibility of having their lives interrupted–yet again–by Pete Zendel. Will Robert be able to protect Ruby, without stopping her from answering an urgent call for help? What will happen to Snowy Peaks? Be the first to find out.
