Where The Devil Can’t Go by Anya Lipska. Read March 2014.

The first Kiszka and Kershaw mystery.
“A naked girl has washed up on the banks of the River Thames. The only clue to her identity is a heart-shaped tattoo encircling two foreign names. Who is she – and why did she die?”
This is one of the most unusual crime fiction novels I have read. An intricate plot with many complex twists and turns keeps you guessing throughout, but there is also a fascinating history lesson about the political and social history of Poland in the late 20th century.
The relationships between the main characters in the story introduce some humour as well as potential for this to develop into a series that will attract many loyal fans. The book is intelligently and beautifully written with rich language (including a peppering of Polish phrases) and the flashback passages transported me to a world I’ve never previously read about.
I’m looking forward to reading the next Kiszka and Kershaw book very soon. Highly recommended.
