"Mighty Ape is great." Purchased on Mighty Ape

As I haven't read ABSOLUTION to date I feel I can't review the book, I'm keeping it as a special treat for while on holiday at Christmas. The service at Mighty Ape I can review, I search for Authors and Titles on Mighty Ape which I cant find in other book shops, Mighty Ape always comes to the party with my requirements, the delivery of my purchases are almost instant if the required Title is in stock otherwise I don't mind waiting until they have it in hand. My choice of reading material is mostly found on Mighty Ape, if not, then it's out of print. Thank you Mighty Ape, you keep supplying me and I will keep buying.


A woman lies mummified in a hospital in Glasgow after acid has been thrown in her face. The woman is mute and nameless. And helpless. PC Alan McAlpine is put on protection duty outside. He calls the woman Anna, and as they learn to communicate through tiny finger movements, he cannot help but become emotionally - and obsessively - involved. Twenty years later, and back at the same station, the now DCI McAlpine has been drafted in to head up a murder inquiry. Two women are already dead at the hands of a man the press call the Crucifixion Killer. McAlpine, at the peak of a distinguished twenty-two-year career, is confident he'll solve the murders - until consequences of Anna's unsolved case emerge. As his team race to unmask a terrifying killer, McAlpine finds that he cannot put his obsession behind him...


Shortlisted for CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger 2008.
