A Second Death

A Second Death

Author(s): Graham Brack

Location(s): Prague

Genre(s): Crime, Fiction

Era(s): 2000s

When the body of a young girl washes up on the banks of the River Vltava, the Czech police are troubled. Brutally murdered and with evidence of sexual abuse, it is not the sort of crime they are used to investigating.

But the strangest thing is that the girl hasn’t been reported missing.

As a newly-appointed Captain, Josef Slonský takes the lead on the case.

With his team seriously understaffed, and increasing pressure coming from the Ministry, he is struggling to keep everything under control.

Why has no one claimed the girl? What has happened to her family?
