It will be no easy task to fill the shoes of a local legend like DCI Charlie Woodend, the newly-promoted Monika Paniatowski tells herself - particularly when he s still a very real presence in Whitebridge - but given a little time, she thinks she can grow into them. Yet time is the one thing she does not have. On her first day in the new job, a severed female hand is discovered on the riverbank. And not only that, but the killer has already alerted the press. Only hours into the case, she find she can no longer trust her colleagues - or even herself - and the urge to pick up the phone and beg Woodend for help becomes almost irresistible.

Critique: "Woodend fans should cherish this finale" Kirkus Reviews on Fatal Quest "As always, Spencer offers up a clever plot, highly skilled writing, deft touches of ironic humor, and consummate characterizations, resulting in another fine entry in this strong procedural series" Booklist on Fatal Quest "Spencer offers up another intriguing and thoroughly enjoyable puzzler" Booklist Starred Review on Dying Fall "A cracking good British police procedural with a plot that's darker than her usual fare and a maverick cop in the John Rebus mold who, despite his flaws and a career that endlessly teeters on the brink of disaster, is as likable as anyone in the genre" Booklist on Death Watch"
