The plot of The Armistice Killer is as intriguing as the characters who stalk its pages all the way from Cornwall to Afghanistan.
The bizarre and brutal murder of a military hero - retired RSM Tom Wright - sets in motion a complex investigation headed by the troubled Inspector Logan.
The detective's prosopagnosia - facial recognition blindness - is almost the least of his problems as his overlapping inner demons and desires threaten his professional competence.
But it's not only faces that confuse Logan as he struggles to read the minds and motives of a compelling, dysfunctional cast of characters, where nobody is quite what they seem, including the murdered soldier himself. Yet Logan's flashes of intuitive genius likewise constantly unsettle those who would remain faceless.
Can Logan and his deputy Pascoe keep on the trail of blood as it leads their investigation up more dark alleys - most of them blind, and some of them heading into their own disturbed pasts?
The Armistice Killer's parade of clues, red herrings, lies and deceits will keep the reader guessing to the last page.
This is author David Palin's second dark psychological thriller involving the unsettled, and unsettling, Inspector Logan. The first - This Changed Everything - has more surprising twists and turns than the wild Cornish road on which newly pregnant Claire Treloggan suffers a sinister and voyeuristic assault. David Palin weaves together the stories of two very damaged people - Claire and Logan. Each has a hidden agenda, there is no room for compromise, and both are being pushed towards a cliff edge below which their personal demons await them.
