In the tenth Brock and Kolla mystery, a beautiful young researcher collapses and dies in the rarified surroundings of the London Library. DI Kathy Kolla and DCI David Brock investigate. The victim's research into the intriguing, adulterous circle of artists, wives, lovers and muses around Victorian artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti seems irrelevant, until the use of arsenic arises. As Brock and Kolla get closer to the truth, another victim dies an excruciating death in a library, and it looks like a serial poisoner is on the loose. An excellent detective novel by an acclaimed Australian writer.
