The second thrilling installment in Michael Ridpath's mystery series featuring Magnus Jonson, a Boston detective working with the Icelandic police department
Iceland 1934: Two boys playing in the lava fields that surround their isolated farmsteads see something they shouldn't. The consequences will haunt them and their families for generations. Iceland 2009: The credit crunch bites. The currency has been devalued, banks have been nationalized, savings have been annihilated, lives have been ruined. Grassroots revolution is in the air, as is the feeling that someone ought to pay. And in a country with a population of just 300,000, in a country where everyone knows everybody, it isn't hard to draw up a list of exactly who is responsible. And then, one-by-one, to cross them off. As bankers and politicians start to turn up dead, it's up to Magnus Jonson to unravel the web of conspirators before they strike again. But while Magnus investigates the crimes of the present, the crimes of the past are catching up with him.
