Kossuth Square, Paperback / softback Book

Kossuth Square Paperback / softback

Part of the Danube Blues series


'A first-class crime thriller' CHARLES CUMMINGS. THE TIMES BEST 100 BOOKS OF THE SUMMER. When Detective Balthazar Kovacs is called out before dawn to a brothel owned by his brother, he knows it can only be bad news.

A customer has died in the brothel's VIP room. Worse still, he's an Arab financier, a guest of government, connected to a massive investment programme that could transform Hungary.

It looks like a heart attack - but why has the brothel's CCTV footage been erased?

Kovacs knows only too well the treacherous undercurrents that permeate life in Hungary's capital - the deadly intersection between the criminal underworld, the corridors of power and the ghosts of history.

He knows that his investigation is more than likely to lead back to the seat of power, the Orszaghaz, in Kossuth Square... but he does not expect to be swept into his own family's dark past too.
