Description

How close can you get to the truth...before you become the target? Jerry Morner lives quietly in a cabin by the old quarry, hurting no one. Or that's what he wants people to believe. It takes one spark and a can of petrol to expose the truth. The fire is deadly. Not for Jerry, but for the two strangers found burnt to death inside. His son starts to search for answers. But he soon realises that some secrets are better left to the dead.

Author description

Johan Theorin's first novel, Echoes from the Dead, won The Swedish Crime Academy's Best First Novel award in 2007, and went on to win the CWA John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger in 2009. His second novel, The Darkest Room, won the Best Swedish Novel 2008, and the CWA International Dagger in 2010. Throughout his life, Johan has been a regular visitor to the Baltic island of Oland, where many of his books are set. His mother's family - sailors, fishermen and farmers - have lived there for centuries, nurturing the island's rich legacy of strange tales and folklore. A journalist by profession, Johan lives in Gothenburg, Sweden.
