All the Lonely People , etc.), the Liverpool attorney receives a fake newspape"/>

Waterloo Sunset

Martin Edwards, Author . Poisoned Pen $24.95 (318p) ISBN 978-1-59058-441-5

At the start of the impressive eighth entry in Edwards’s Harry Devlin series (All the Lonely People , etc.), the Liverpool attorney receives a fake newspaper notice announcing his death on Midsummer’s Eve. Subsequent threatening messages lead him to take the less-than-a-week deadline seriously. Given Devlin’s penchant for sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong, many people bear him murderous grudges. Devlin focuses on two suspects—Tom Gunter, a violent thug and a former client, and Aled Borth, a loner angered that the lawyer’s best efforts didn’t result in a charge of murder being brought against the nursing home where Borth’s mother died. The addition of a serial killer who severs his victim’s tongues might have proven too much for the plot to bear in a lesser writer’s hands, but Edwards skillfully weaves the strands together. While some readers will guess the truth before Devlin does, all will enjoy this twisty whodunit. (Apr.)
