Duration: 9 hours 47 minutes
Love never dies … unless a killer intervenes.
The Hotel Southern Savoy has become the reluctant host to two corpses on a single night—and homicide inspector Scobie Malone knows this investigation will be a nightmare from the moment he arrives. The first victim was the wife of the American ambassador, a slaying that will certainly have international repercussions—and worse, if the lady’s dark secrets are ever revealed. But it’s the second murder that strikes straight at Malone’s heart. The dead man was the husband of a woman from Malone’s past, a brief love long over but never forgotten. An assassin has violently blended Malone’s personal and professional lives in a lethal stew of blood and memory, and there’s no way the dedicated policeman’s going to walk away from this one unscathed. But even Scobie Malone doesn’t realize how deadly a concoction it truly is—and by the time he does, it may be too late.
“The Malone stories come alive through their setting…Cleary’s writing is seamless and his plots imaginative and mature.”—Carl Hiaasen on the Malone series
