"Fans of the PBS series Prime Suspect or of hot Scottish writer Ian Rankin shouldn't wait to check out this mystery...[it] will surely be one of the best mysteries of the summer, probably of the year."
- Rocky Mountain News on The Dead Sit Round in a Ring
 
Cold Kill, David Lawrence's third book in the highly acclaimed Detective Stella Mooney series, finds the memorable Stella at a crime scene in a wintry London park.
 
The brutalized corpse of a young woman has just been discovered. When Robert Kimber walks into a Notting Hill police station and confesses to the murder, it's an open-and-shut case--just what the police want this close to Christmas. But Stella has her doubts. And if their suspect didn't commit the murder, who did? Someone without a conscience. Someone who will tap into Kimber's disturbed mind. Someone who needs an apprentice for the dark business he has planned....

Praise for Cold Kill

"Lawrence's crisp writing and memorable characters make this an absorbing read.... The author displays enough talent to attract nonprocedural fans, and his deft touch at occasional gallows humor helps this novel to stand out from the pack."
- Publishers Weekly 
 
"Swift, convoluted...Lawrence excels in creating a relentlessly grim pressure-cooker of a city with some of the meanest streets in the business. An elegiac entry for noir fans who favor Ken Bruen, Mo Hayder, or James Ellroy."
Booklist
 
"Lawrence's prose remains riveting, and the regulars grow steadily more complex."
- Kirkus Reviews
 
"A refreshing police procedural with fully developed characters, lot of action and some shocking twists.... Fans who appreciate a complex murder mystery will want to read David Lawrence’s tense thriller."
- Midwest Book Review
 
"Puts Lawrence aside other emerging British stars such as Mark Billingham. The characters are credible and the police work is convincingly portrayed. The story develops in unexpected ways and is quite suspenseful. Mooney is a complex and interesting character. I look forward to the next outing by Lawrence and Mooney."
- Deadly Pleasures
