In Smith's engaging eighth procedural to feature Broadminster Det. Chief Insp. Neil Paget (after 2009's The Cold Hand of Malice ), Paget looks into a 13-year-old case after new information comes to light. Scrawled notes, written by 19-year-old Barry Grant before he blew his head off with a shotgun, reveal that Barry was the getaway driver for a gang that committed several robberies and killed two people in the last one. Paget directs a finely drawn cast of supporting characters, including Det. Sgt. John Tregalles and Det. Constable Molly Forsythe, as they begin the arduous task of re-interviewing the many victims and witnesses and re-examining evidence and files. The cold case heats up when an arsonist tries to destroy Grant's old home and a potential witness is almost beaten to death. Smith keeps readers interested and in doubt all the way to the revelation of the surprising culprits. (June)
