Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned… Someone is killing and mutilating young men in Amsterdam – the murders are brutal, sexual, and ritualized. For detective Joyce Pino, after a succession of failures, this is the perfect case to get her back on track. But as it becomes clear the murderer is a middle-aged woman, the case shifts uncomfortably close to home. Some of the victims are associates, and a criminal profiler and external agencies are beginning to point the finger at Joyce herself. Added to this, she has a new rookie partner who’s far too handsome and clever for his own good. Detective Pino needs to keep a grip on the investigation long enough to find the killer. Black Widow is a taut and chilling new crime novel, perfect for fans of Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbo.
