LoveReading View on A Dark and Broken Heart

A dark and atmospheric noir thriller from the award-winning author of A Quiet Belief in Angels. A thief steals from other thieves, hoping for the perfect crime as they aren't likely to go to the police. But the robbery goes disastrously wrong and a young girl is murdered. Now everyone is trying to hunt him down. This skillfully crafted thriller further builds on Ellory's excellent canon of work.

But things go wrong when Madigan is forced to kill his co-conspirators and a child is shot in the crossfire. Now both sides of the law are hunting him down, and the cop assigned to lead the case is the very last person he could have expected ...
