Where the Devil Can't Go is a successful ebook that is published in paperback in the UK today.
A naked girl has washed up on the banks of the River Thames. The only clue to her identity is a heart-shaped tattoo encircling two foreign names. Who is she – and why did she die?
Life’s already complicated enough for Janusz Kiszka, unofficial 'fixer' for East London’s Polish community: his priest has asked him to track down a young waitress who has gone missing; a builder on the Olympics site owes him a pile of money; and he’s falling for married Kasia, Soho’s most strait-laced stripper. But when Janusz finds himself accused of murder by an ambitious young detective, Natalie Kershaw, and pursued by drug dealing gang members, he is forced to take an unscheduled trip back to Poland to find the real killer.
In the mist-wreathed streets of his hometown of Gdansk, Janusz must confront painful memories from the Soviet past if he is to uncover the conspiracy – and with it, a decades-old betrayal.
Where the Devil Can't Go is a compelling crime thriller that follows parallel, but discrete, investigations into the deaths and disappearances of young women in London. The official investigation is led by Detective Natalie Kershaw, the unofficial one by Januscz Kiska, a Polish Londoner who travels from London to Poland and back again to uncover the truth. Meanwhile we discover the secret sadness buried in Kiska's past, and why he's claustrophobic in crowded, enclosed places; and we follow Kershaw's attempts to establish her credentials as a detective among her male-dominated team. Poland's political history is woven into the story; present-day political intrigues in Poland have a bearing on events taking place in the UK. This is billed as 'The first Kiszka and Kershaw mystery.' I'm looking forward to the next one.
