I was Dora Suarez

£7.99

Product description

I was Dora Suarez is the fourth in the acclaimed 'Factory' series. Dora Suarez expected to die - by her own hand. she did not expect to be hacked to pieces by a perverted axe-wielding psychopath. She left no evidence of her thirty years of life, of her career in prostitution; no indication as to why she was going to kill herself - and nothing to identify her killer. all she left was a notebook containing the tortuous ramblings of a life spent rotting on the streets of London, of a beautiful woman more dead than alive, even when she lived. 
The Detective Sergeant, officially removed for insubordination, is now back at the Department of Unexplained Deaths. He's cold-blooded, aloner and a cynic, the only one who can solve the toughest cases. And this case is tough. Next door to the bloodied remains of Dora Suarez lies the broken body of an 86 year old widow, and a mile away the brains of a sleazy West End racketeer are found adorning the walls of his dining room.
The notebook of Dora Suarez is the only lead. The more he reads, the more obsessed the detective becomes; obsessed with the case and the woman he knows too well but will never meet.the woman he might have loved and could have saved from her tragic life and appalling death. It is a death he must avenge by finding her killer - at whatever cost. 
Breaking all rules, using the nastiest tactics, he cracks the case all right, but he may have shattered his own life in the process....

Published in 1990, this is a first edition. The DJ is present with a 'First Edition' label on the spine. Generally in very good clean condition.
