Ishmael Jones works for a British agency so secret it is only called The Organization. Ishmael has his own big secret: he isn't human. In his latest case, the Organization sends him to Ringstone Lodge in Yorkshire to interrogate rogue agent Frank Parker, who defected and now has returned to the fold. But Parker is found dead in a highly secured cell. Only seven people are at the Manor. Which one of them killed Parker?
VERDICT This sequel to the wonderful The Dark Side of the Road takes the basic structure of a traditional English country house mystery and mixes it with a bit of supernatural horror and suspense. Richard Kadrey and E.E. Knight fans will particularly relish Green's genre-blending novel.
