DIANA BRETHERICK City of Devils Meet the world’s first criminologist in this gripping thriller set in nineteenth-century Turin. For fans of CJ Sansom and Imogen Robertson. In the late 1890s, James Murray, a Scottish scientist fascinated by the developing research into criminology and the study of criminal behaviour, travels to Turin to be apprenticed to Cesare Lombroso, the world-renowned criminologist. But just hours after his introduction to his new mentor, the discovery of a mutilated body in a public square and a note that appears to implicate Lombroso throws his visit in a whole new direction. Is the note an accusation or a challenge? And will Lombroso’s controversial theories about the behaviour of criminals help to catch a dangerous killer let loose on the streets of Turin? • Major media campaign including cross-

promotion with Good Housekeeping. Diana Bretherick is an ex-criminal barrister and now a lecturer in criminology at Portsmouth University. She won the Good Housekeeping new novel competition in 2012.
