Das Letzte, woran Amy sich erinnert, ist das Konzert in London. Danach strömender Regen, ein Lieferwagen, der sie und Sam nach Southampton mitnehmen will, der Geruch von Kaffee. Und dann das Erwachen: ein altes Schwimmbad. Entkommen unmöglich. Die Botschaft ihres Peinigers: Entweder sterben beide, langsam, qualvoll. Oder einer tötet den anderen und ist frei. Mit Amy und Sam beginnt es. Der Anfang einer Serie. Das Muster: ein einsamer Ort, zwei Menschen, die sich nahestehen, eine Kugel. Und eine Entscheidung, an deren Ende der Tod steht. Oder ein Leben mit einer kaum zu bewältigenden Schuld. Detective Inspector Helen Grace und ihr Team tappen lange im Dunkeln; nichts scheint die verschiedenen Opfer zu verbinden. Doch die Entführungen sind so akribisch vorbereitet, so konsequent durchgeführt, dass es einen Plan geben muss. Und für Helen, die nach außen so stark und unberührbar erscheint, ist die Zeit gekommen, ein weiteres Mal ihre eigene innere Hölle zu durchschreiten, Brücken einzureißen und über Grenzen zu gehen.

Wenn es brennt in den Straßen. Und in den Herzen. Mitten in der Nacht lodern die Flammen in Southampton, mehrere Brände zerstören Leben. Die Ursache: kein tragisches Unglück, auch nicht das Werk eines typischen Brandstifters. Sondern viel erschreckender: In jedem der Fälle handelt es sich um sorgfältig geplanten Mord. Detective Inspector Helen Grace und ihr Team stehen vor zahlreichen Fragen: Warum wurden die Opfer ausgewählt? Was verbindet sie miteinander? Was treibt den Mörder an? Und: Wer wird der Nächste sein? Ein Pulverfass aus Angst und Verdächtigungen scheint geöffnet – und es braucht nur einen Funken, um es zur Explosion zu bringen. «Arlidges vierter Roman ist so gut, dass neue Leser der Helen-Grace-Reihe sofort die früheren Bände werden lesen wollen ... Helen sticht als eine der unwiderstehlichsten Ermittlerinnen der Kriminalliteratur heraus.» (Publishers Weekly) «Rasend spannend.» (The Times)
