Summary

The first Kiszka and Kershaw mystery.

A naked girl has washed up on the banks of the River Thames. The only clue to her identity is a heart-shaped tattoo encircling two foreign names. Who is she - and why did she die?

Life's already complicated enough for Janusz Kiszka, unofficial 'fixer' for East London's Polish community: His priest has asked him to track down a young waitress who has gone missing; a builder on the Olympics site owes him a pile of money; and he's falling for married Kasia, Soho's most strait-laced stripper.

But when Janusz finds himself accused of murder by an ambitious young detective, Natalie Kershaw, and pursued by drug dealing gang members, he is forced to take an unscheduled trip back to Poland to find the real killer.

In the mist-wreathed streets of his hometown of Gdansk, Janusz must confront painful memories from the Soviet past if he is to uncover the conspiracy - and with it, a decades-old betrayal.

Wonderful!

Great characters and great stories! I’ve binged all 3 of these detective books and loved the Polish elements especially the food (I need to eat it all now!) The history and social commentary is especially evocative to someone who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. And having lived in North London I can picture many of those locations. Wonderful narration too! Loved it 😊

Excellent!

What a great story! Lots of twists and suspense. Great if you're from the London area as you recognise places and it makes it so realistic! Gripping and makes you keen to hear the next one! Recommended
