(Book 16 in the Detective Inspector Skelgill Investigates series)
A novel by Bruce Beckham
STAND-ALONE MURDER MYSTERY, #16 IN THE SERIES. MEET MAVERICK BRITISH DETECTIVE DI SKELGILL... "MAD, BAD AND JUST A LITTLE BIT COZY."
Nobody saw her. Nobody can find her.
When 37-year-old Lisa Jackson sets out for work one Friday morning she is in high spirits. Things are going well with her new boyfriend. But when she does not reach her desk, or answer her mobile phone, her colleagues and family raise the alarm.
Suspicion immediately falls on co-worker Ray Piper. A married man, he and Lisa have recently ended an affair. But steely-eyed Piper denies any knowledge of Lisa’s disappearance.
Yet as the police begin to piece together her last movements – and match them to those of her ex-lover – a narrative emerges that leads to only one possible conclusion.
With Skelgill and DS Leyton otherwise engaged, it falls to DS Emma Jones to head the investigation – a chance for the bright young detective to shine. But soon she finds herself engaged in a deadly battle of wits with a cold and calculating adversary.
Will she hold her nerve? Will she succeed alone? And what will happen if she does not find Lisa – for no body undermines her case.
As the trial date nears, hopes begin to fade – Lisa is gone without trace. And a scheming killer may walk free.
"Great characters. Great atmospheric locale. Great plots. What's not to like?"
