The Killing Time, the latest Inspector Danilov mystery is now available for pre-order.

Here's the blurb:

As tensions simmer in Shanghai, children go missing…

Shanghai 1932: Inspector Danilov hasn't recovered from the death of his child... but across a Shanghai riven with communal tensions, children are going missing.

Missing, and then murdered. Who is responsible? Why have the children's bodies been exhibited for all to see?

Just as Danilov thinks the stakes couldn't be higher there is a new dimension, Japan, a rising power flexing its muscles. In fractious Shanghai, an explosion is long overdue. With the clock ticking can Danilov and his assistant Strachan solve the case? The fate of Shanghai may be at stake. So is Danilov’s job... And his sanity.

The Killing Time is the fourth gripping mystery in the Inspector Danilov series set in 1930s Shanghai, but it can be read as a stand-alone novel.
