About the Book:
Scotland Yard's Adam Dalgliesh is searching for a "back seat strangler" who has already murdered four people.
When an unpopular forensic scientist is found dead in a British government laboratory, Dalgliesh discovers that almost everyone there could be a suspect. When another body is found nearby, the detective must race against time to find the killer.
This is a mystery revolving around a community of forensic scientists who, in spite of their seen it all before attitude with regard to murder and mayhem, are taken by surprise when a member of their own team is found murdered.
