Deadly Hush is the third in the Det. Inspector Todd “Ratso” Holtom series. It follows the acclaim for Hard Place and Dead Fix. Now, Ratso has a serial killer on the loose. With each body, the killer leaves a playing-card. The first murder involves a gay icon TV presenter in London. When further gays are murdered, Ratso’s boss is convinced these are hate-crimes. Ratso’s viewpoint differs, presenting a challenge for him and his loyal team.
With media outcry as deaths mount, Ratso’s problems worsen. His jailed adversary, Boris Zandro, hires a hitman to deliver vengeance while Ratso’s investigation jets him to Switzerland and the Caribbean. Layer-on-layer of conflicting evidence leads to dramatic action as the plot races to a tense and nerve-racking climax.
