A fatal explosion in the past. A series of brutal murders in the present. In the blazing Gibraltar sun, is justice being served for betrayals long hidden?

Gibraltar, 1940. A bomb explodes, killing two British soldiers patrolling the dockyards. A Spaniard is executed for the crime, yet protests his innocence to the very last.

Present day, and Spike Sanguinetti finds himself defending the violent and alcoholic Christopher Massetti in a harassment case brought against him by the wealthy and respected Dr. Eloise Capurro. Yet the case isn't as cut-and-dried as it first seems and Massetti walks free. Only days later, Dr. Capurro leaps to her death from a blazing house fire before Sanguinetti's very eyes. Sanguinetti spots someone else watching, someone hiding in the shadows. Massetti.

The further Sanguinetti investigates, the more secrets buried deep in Gibraltar's past he uncovers, and they lead him to the doors of some of the most powerful people in town. People dangerously close to his own life--and fragile happiness.

Loyalties are tested to the very limits in the latest gripping installment from crime writer Thomas Mogford.

"'A Thousand Cuts' is another riveting novel from Thomas Mogford and showcases his genuine flair for originality and the creation of memorable characters embedded in a compelling story." - Midwest Book Review"Mogford unspools an intricate tale . . . Throughout the series, Mogford has explored the multicultural tensions that define contemporary Gibraltar, and this time he ups the ante by adding a fascinating historical layer to that ambiguity-drenched cultural stew . . . An essential international crime series." - Booklist"Very original, and brilliantly rendered . . . a rare and enviable talent." - William Boyd"Evocative, engrossing and entertaining." - The Times"Mogford's sharp prose drew me in from the first page and his intriguingly flawed hero Spike stands out in the memory." - Sadie Jones"Popular fiction at its best." - Susan Hill
