When DI Chris Sigurdsson is assigned a grisly murder case on remote Salvation Island, he knows that it might be his strangest yet.
A forgotten wrestling star of the 1980s has been poisoned whilst in the ring, and amidst the slippery lies of his dangerous opponents, unravelling the victim’s murky past is almost impossible.

Review: Sadly I haven’t been able to finish this book due to other commitments but I have been able to read enough of it to form an opinion on it.
It is an interesting premise for a story which is full of larger than life characters. This is a well-woven tale which takes the reader into the world of wrestling and is written in such a way that even if you have never been a fan of the sport you will still enjoy the story. The flashback parts are helpful in giving a background to the victim and the other characters but it also lets you learn about the victim from himself, not just from other people’s viewpoints. While this is something that doesn’t always work it is handled well here and as such adds to the story rather than detracting from it.
This is my first read by this author but it is certainly something I would recommend. A worthy addition to the crime grenre.
