Or was the killer an unstable client of psychologist Tessa?The author touches on the world of big-time art theft and Neo-Naziism in London. And Casey finds that a cop, trying to right his own wrongs, can ignite passion deep within her.The author gives a clear picture of a chilling winter in the English countryside, and presents believable, complex characters. I still had some questions at the end, but I found the story thought-provoking and satisfying.
