The Killer's Guide To Iceland by Zane Radcliffe
Callum looked out over ReykjavÃk, its colourful dolls' houses snuggled together, their rooftops so sharp and precise against a blue-screen sky. He loved this daft capital, this gale-blown toy town with whalebones under its flagstones...
But Callum Pope cannot escape the horrors of his past.
He has fled his native Glasgow to make a fresh start in Iceland with BÃrna SveinsdÃ³ttir, the pretty glaciologist who is slowly thawing his heart.
He has moved in with BÃrna, her indomitable mother (who happens to believe in fairies) and her eleven-year-old daughter â€“ who refuses to believe in Callum. He tries hard to adjust to this new life among three generations of singular females, however, the dark secret Callum is hiding is about to raise its malign head, threatening not only to destroy his relationship but also the life of a young girlâ€¦
