Dance of Death

(The fifth book in the DCI David Fyfe series)
A novel by

Mikhail Gorbachov, leader of the new Russia and architect of the glasnost era, seems to have achieved unchallengeable political control of his country and its empire.

But beneath the surface calm, continuing nationalist unrest and a disaffected military establishment are gradually eroding his power base. The voices of those who want to return to the old ways begin to whisper insistently.

In his first overseas visit for two years Gorbachov leaves the safety of the Kremlin, despite the rumour of an assassination plot, to attend a gala performance by the Bolshoi Ballet at the 50th International Edinburgh Festival.

Two men are in charge of Gorbachov’s safety, Gennadi Potapenko and David Fyfe, but one of them isn’t who he says he is. It quickly becomes impossible to tell who is there to guard and who is there to kill as the partners take the floor in a terrifying
Dance of Death.

Praise for William Paul:

‘Fyfe's engrossing ruminations on the human condition [means] readers will find themselves absorbed from beginning to end.’

‘High-voltage goings-on, packed with steamy sex [and] mixed motives… Fyfe’s first procedural will grab the reader’s attention and hold it to the finish.’
Kirkus Review

‘A reminder that Scottish crime is rougher, tougher, and somehow more jaunty than the kind that’s celebrated down south.’
