British Fantasy Society Best Novel (nominee)
A murderous creature with the face of an angel.
Sarah Leonard is supervising the construction of an international hotel in post-Cold War Warsaw. If the job doesn't come in on time and under budget, Sarah will be out of a job.
Shockingly, a headless body is discovered in a sewer tunnel at the construction site. Polish authorities pressure the Warsaw police to solve the case quickly, even if they have to invent a murderer.
Unluckily for the authorities, the case is assigned to Komisarz Stefan Rej. Rej wants a real investigation and real justice, particularly once his investigation turns up evidence that more than one person has disappeared or been slaughtered near the hotel site. The location is linked to the ancient legend of the Tunnel Child, a murderous creature with the face of an angel, apparently created by mad Nazi scientists.
Who, or what, are Sarah and Rej chasing?
'One of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time' PETER JAMES.
'A true master of horror' JAMES HERBERT.
