Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Two crimes linked across decades. A murderer still at work in the deadly shadows. THE PAST: In wartime Reykjavik, Iceland, a young woman is found strangled in "the Shadow District," a rough and dangerous area of the city. An Icelandic detective and a member of the American military police are on the trail of a brutal killer. THE PRESENT: A ninety-year-old man is discovered dead on his bed, smothered with his own pillow. Konrad, a former detective now bored with retirement, finds newspaper cuttings in the dead man's home about the WWII Shadow District murder. It's a crime that Konrad remembers, having grown up in the same neighborhood. A MISSING LINK: Why, after all this time, would an old crime resurface?"--Dust jacket flap.
