Detective Superintendent Roy Grace has his hands full with a new baby due and a major investigation underway. This fast paced British police procedural starts with a random traffic accident resulting in the death of a young American man who was struck while riding a bicycle. Three motor vehicles were involved. A car driven by a woman who crashes her car when narrowly avoiding the bicycle. A white van that hits the young man, then speeds away. Lastly a tractor trailer that can't stop before the bicyclist is thrown under it's wheels resulting in the youth's death. A tragic accident, yet it is about to be complicated by the revelation that the youth's family is connected with the mob. The wrath of God would have to take second place to the terrible vengeance that will befall the people involved in this accident. This very good suspense story is told from the viewpoints of all the major participants. I found it very detailed and quite imaginative. The character types, while familiar, are very well handled with some very interesting twists. This book is a follow up to Dead Like You in the Detective Roy Grace series. Book provided by the well read folks at Minotaur Books.
