Bierce was a happily married cop with a bright future. Then on one sunny day in July his wife and their young son were savagely beaten to death. Bierce was convicted of their murders. Languishing on Death Row twenty-three years later, he still has no memory of the incident.


Unexpectedly, inexplicably released just seconds before his execution, he teams up with the beautiful, feisty, half-Chinese Alice Loong, who guides him through the confusing new world of the twenty-first century. But it soon becomes clear that Alice is hiding dark secrets of her own.


Pursued by mysterious enemies who are convinced that Bierce knows more thatn he is telling about his wife's death, the pair are forced into a dangerous race against time to uncover the truth about the events of that fateful day.

David Hewson

Former Sunday Times journalist David Hewson is well known for his crime-thriller fiction set in European cities. He is the author of the highly acclaimed The Killing novels set in Denmark, the Detective Nic Costa series set in Italy and the Pieter Vos series in Amsterdam. The Killing trilogy is based on the BAFTA award-winning Danish TV series created by Søren Sveistrup and produced by DR, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation. While he lives in Kent, Hewson's ability to capture the sense of place and atmosphere in his fiction comes from spending considerable research time in the cities in which the books are set: Copenhagen, Rome, Venice and Amsterdam.
