A terrific murder mystery full of twists and turns. Undercover cop McDonagh wakes up in a London hotel with a gunshot wound in his head, a dead woman in the bathroom and no memory. Fantastic, now you’re hooked and here is a writer who knows how to keep you gripped. Fast and furious with all the right ingredients we have drama, suspense, love, betrayal, misunderstanding, false accusations, running from the law and the villains, undercover investigations, sex, identical twins, Eastern European criminals, all peppered with more violence and murder. Wow.

Synopsis

Vendetta by Dreda Say Mitchell

Two murders. Two different crime scenes. One killer? Mac wakes in an smashed-up hotel room with no recollection of what has happened. With his lover's corpse in the bathroom and the evidence suggesting that he killed her, Mac is on a mission to uncover the truth and find the real killer. But he's in a race against time with less than a day to unravel the mystery. Still reeling from a personal tragedy Mac isn't afraid of pain. Hot on his heels is tenacious Detective Inspector Rio Wray. Double-crossed and in the line of fire, Mac has to swim through a sea of lies to get to the truth. But only Mac knows he's been living a double life. Can he be sure he doesn't have the blood of a dead woman on his hands?
