Our Lady Of Pain.

by Elena. Forbes

First edition. Fine in fine dust jacket. On a snowy February morning, London art dealer Rachel Tenison goes for a jog through Holland Park. Still giddy from too much to drink last night, she trips and falls at the bottom of an icy hill. Lying on her back, enjoying the sensation of snowflakes melting on her skin, she savors the unexpected stillness of the moment. Then there's a sharp crack of a tree branch close behind her, followed by a voice, softly calling her name. Two days later, her frozen naked body is found with a verse from a strange poem stuffed in her mouth. DI Mark Tartaglia and DS Sam Donovan to investigate. They find that as much mystery surrounds Rachel's life as does her death, and when a tip from a journalist draws their attention to similarities between this murder and an unsolved crime committed the year before, the web becomes more tangled than ever.
