9780062136725 In this gritty, white-knuckle crime thriller, Detective Nick Belseyâ€”introduced in the acclaimed The Hollow Man as a shrewd, street-smart cynic who is one of Londonâ€™s sharpest, but most unprincipled, investigatorsâ€”is plunged into a perplexing mystery of secrets, danger, and suspense beneath the cityâ€™s streets. Trouble once again finds Nick Belsey when he takes a date to an abandoned bomb shelter buried beneath the heart of London. One minute the young woman is there, and the next, sheâ€™s gone, mysteriously vanishing into the dark labyrinth of secret tunnels. A seasoned cop with a bad reputation, Nick knows that if he reports her disappearance, heâ€™ll be the prime suspect. Instead, heâ€™s going to find her. Itâ€™s not just her life at stakeâ€”itâ€™s his, too. Determined to discover who else is down in those forgotten tunnels, and how far this secret network of underground passages extends, he plunges head first into the investigationâ€”and into a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthless enemy who would rather let an innocent woman die than reveal old Cold War secrets hidden deep beneath the cityâ€™s streets. An edgy, subversive thriller with the superb characterization of classic Lawrence Block and the psychological acuity and suspense of Sophie Hannah, Deep Shelter is a compulsively readable mystery from a master of literary suspense.
