PUBLISHERS WEEKLY --"Set on Long Island, Marks's suspenseful second crime novel featuring Det. Sgt. Neil Jericho (after 2014's Death Hampton) contains more than a few surprises. Still reeling from the breakup of his last serious relationship--with a woman he investigated who was suspected of murdering her husband for his millions--
Jericho must tackle a truly odd case. A severed foot has washed ashore from Block
Island Sound, with only a partial tattoo and an unusual nail polish on its toes as
clues to the owner's identity. After the papers report the gruesome find, 16-year-
old Aaron Platt takes advantage of the revelation to send the police a taunting
letter ("Something's afoot. Foul play?"), further complicating the inquiry.

Later, wealthy Sanford Richman reports his wife Ann missing, shortly before her
severed foot turns up on another beach. An attractive junior officer, Maria Salazar,
provides a welcome romantic distraction. Readers should be prepared for a shocking ending."

'Fast paced with tons of twists and turns.' The Wishing ShelfBook Awards (UK)
Praise for Walter Marks' DEATH HAMPTON -- introducing Detective Jericho:
"A fast-paced mystery with plenty of action and colorful characters."
