Description

Arora becomes involved in the search for an Icelandic woman who disappeared from her home while making dinner, as she denys to hunt for her missing sister. The second breathtaking instalment in the chilling, addictive An Arora Investigation series... 'Icelandic crime-writing at its finest ... immersive and unnerving' Shari Lapena 'Chilly and chilling ... Lilja Sigurdardottir's terrific investigator Arora is back for another tense and thrilling read. Highly recommended!' Tariq Ashkanani 'Lilja Sigurdardottir is rapidly becoming my favourite Icelandic writer. She doesn't waste a word as she creates her twisty mysteries and her sly sense of humour highlights her clear-eyed view of human nature' The Times 'The Icelandic scenery and weather are beautifully evoked - you can almost feel the autumn fog seeping up from the pages - but it is the corkscrew twists that make it both chilling and mesmerising' Daily Mail _____________________________ When entrepreneur Flosi arrives home for dinner one night, he discovers that his house has been ransacked, and his wife Gudrun missing. A letter on the kitchen table confirms that she has been kidnapped. If Flosi doesn't agree to pay an enormous ransom, Gudrun will be killed. Forbidden from contacting the police, he gets in touch with Arora, who specialises in finding hidden assets, and she, alongside her detective friend Daniel, try to get to the bottom of the case without anyone catching on. Meanwhile, Arora and Daniel deny the puzzling, devastating search for Arora's sister Isafold, who disappeared without trace. As fog descends, in a cold and rainy Icelandic autumn, the investigation becomes increasingly dangerous, and confusing. Chilling, twisty and unbearably tense, Red as Blood is the second instalment in the riveting, addictive An Arora Investigation series, and everything is at stake... _________________________________ 'Lilja is a stand-out voice in Iceland Noir' James Oswald 'Sure to please Scandi noir fans' Publishers Weekly 'One of my new favourite series ...
