There is a large cast of characters, some of whom have appeared in previous books by James Morley. Emily Stoneman and her family become central to the disturbing events around the initial death and as other deaths occur tension rises as to who else might be killed and why. It seems that a psychopath is responsible though there are possibly business reasons for the events. Police work is interposed with journalistic interviews as attempts are made to understand the motivation behind the deaths. As explanations for the happenings begin to surface there is a tense climax.
The tale is a complete one and the reader does not need to have read the previous stories about these characters first.

James Morley has written 6 previous crime novels and at least 4 of those feature some of the characters of Tangled Retribution.
