MARK OF THE DEVIL - Tana Collins
While Inspector Jim Carruthers and team are busy investigating a series of art thefts, they receive an anonymous tip-off about the body of a young woman on a deserted beach. The bizarre clues to her identity and what might have happened to her include a strange tattoo, a set of binoculars and a slab of meat left on the cliffs.
The team’s investigations lead them to a local shooting estate and its wealthy owner, Barry Cuthbert. However, Carruthers suspects Cuthbert is not all he seems and the DI soon starts to wonder if the cases of the missing works of art, the dead woman and the estate are connected.
When the body of a young gamekeeper is pulled from the sea, tensions boil over. The trail of clues lead the team to the unlikely location of Tallinn and into the sinister world of international crime and police corruption.
Needing answers, Carruthers must look further afield than Fife. However, the closer he gets to the truth, the more danger he finds himself in. Since everyone who crosses the vengeful killers seems to end up dead, can Carruthers solve the case with his life intact?
