Now, in the blank-faced and mazed city, death had become vicious and secret and cold. Somewhere out there, an ego was coiled, waiting.
Winner of a Golden Dagger award, Paula Gosling’s Monkey Puzzle introduces us to Detective Lieutenant Jack Stryker. An obsessive cop, an oddball, and (occasionally) a genius.
When Grantham University’s most unpopular professor is viciously murdered there are a myriad of potential suspects, and one of whom happens to be connected to Stryker’s past . . .
The murderous attacks continue. The city and the campus panic. Stryker is trapped in a maze of conflicting motives, emotions and clues. And at the center of the maze awaits – a monster.
Plotted with great guile, this is a scintillating entertainment
Grips and amuses to the last sentence
A neat variation on old themes, nicely written and convincingly expounded
