Summary
The assassinations of suspected war criminals from the 1990s Balkan conflict, a decades-long love affair, and the seemingly unrelated discovery of skeletal remains in Scotland lead cold case detective Karen Pirie to find that justice is often as elusive as her own happiness.
Critique
This is an engaging and literate mystery which elegantly examines the emotional cost of war.
