Synopsis

Evil in Return by Elena Forbes

The body of bestselling novelist Joe Logan is found dumped in a disused Victorian crypt at the Brompton Cemetery. He had been tied up, shot and castrated - why? Detective Inspector Mark Tartaglia is convinced that Logan's personal life holds the key. Logan had been working on an unfinished manuscript, but all trace of it has now disappeared. Could it hold a vital clue? Then the body of a second man is discovered in an old boathouse on the Thames - killed in an identical fashion to Logan.
