HE WHOSE NAME IS NO MORE
Dawn breaks over London. A man’s body lies on a table - minus its internal organs. The murderer is an old lady with a spotless reputation. What could have led her to kill a man she raised as her own son ? It makes no sense - and yet everything points to her as the culprit.
The next day, the same thing happens again : a man is killed in a similar fashion by the person who loves him more than anyone else. And so it goes on, with a new victim every twenty-four hours. All the murders are linked by a common thread : disoriented suspects and epitaphs in letters of blood : "May these sacrifices bring peace to the soul of He whose Name is no more".
Amid these inexplicable murders, three destinies become interwoven. McKenna is an Irishman : a veteran detective with Scotland Yard, father of four boys, widowed a year ago and still grief-stricken. Dahlia Rhymes is an American criminologist who specializes in ritual and satanic murders, assigned to fathom out what makes these killers tick. Nils Blake is a semi-retired barrister who is willing to return to court to defend these unlikely perpetrators. Three destinies - and three lives irreversibly changed.
The tale is packed with breath-taking suspense, larger-than-life characters and a completely unexpected final twist. On the borderline between love and death, this thriller will leave its mark on you.
