Book 2 in the Munch and Krüger series, this book follows ‘I’m Travelling Alone’.

From the back Cover:

When a young woman is found dead, the police are quick to respond. But what they find at the scene is unexpected. The body is posed, the scene laboriously set. And there is almost no forensic evidence to be found.
