The Armistice Killer
THE ARMISTICE KILLER - Heroes aren't always heroic
By David Palin
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 again 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 cast of characters.
Wright’s estranged family, with their abusive relationships, along with his former military colleagues, who throw an unwanted searchlight into the dark recesses of the supposed hero’s war record, all have good reasons to commit murder. But nobody is quite what they seem.
Yet Logan’s flashes of intuitive genius constantly unsettle these suspects. Can Logan, and his deputy Pascoe, recognise the truth even when it stares them in the face?
Especially after a second seemingly unconnected ferocious murder and then a nearly fatal abduction lead the police investigation up more dark alleys – most of them blind.
The Armistice Killer’s parade of clues, red herrings, lies and deceits will keep the reader guessing to the last page.
