Cold Malice, Paperback / softback Book

Cold Malice Paperback / softback

Part of the Gunnhildur Mystery series

Description

Reykjavik detective Gunnhildur Gisladottir tries not to believe in ghosts.

But when Helgi, one of her team is certain he's seen a man who had been declared dead more than fifteen years ago, she reluctantly gives him some unofficial leeway to look into it.

Has the not-so-dead man returned from the grave to settle old scores, or has he just decided to take a last look around his old haunts?

Either way, there are people who have nursed grudges for years, hoping for a reckoning one day.

Even the rumour of his being alive and kicking is enough to spark a storm of fury and revenge, with Gunnhildur and Helgi caught up in the middle of it.

Praise for Quentin Bates: 'A great read - leaves you craving the next installment' - Yrsa Sigur?ardottir 'A meticulously constructed thriller, peopled with exceptionally convincing characters and shot through with black humour.

Frozen Out is as chilling as an Icelandic winter' - S.J.

Bolton 'Superior crime fiction set in Iceland... this is a well constructed, well written and satisfying police procedural' - The Times on Cold Comfort '[A] crackling fiction debut ... palpable authenticity' - Publishers Weekly on Frozen Out
