This series gets better and better--the layers of this murder were masterful.  Vera Stanhope is complex and I love learning more about her.  This is the first time in a long time that the clues were all there and I didn't put them together.  So many red herrings!

From the publisher:

The shouts and laughter of Christmas revelers break the muffled silence as Detective Joe Ashworth and his daughter Jessie are swept along onto the Metro.

But when the train is stopped due to the bad weather, Jessie notices that one lady hasn't left the train: Margaret Krukowski has been fatally stabbed. Why would anyone want to harm this reserved, elegant lady?

Arriving at the scene, DI Vera Stanhope is relieved to have an excuse to escape the holiday festivities. Soon Vera and Joe are on their way to where Margaret lived to begin their inquiry.

Then, just days later, a second woman is murdered. Vera finds herself searching deep into the hidden past led by clues that keep revolving around one street . . .

Why are the residents of Harbour Street so reluctant to speak?
