Dig Two Graves

(The first book in the DS Hedley Sharpe Mystery series)
A novel by

Meet Detective Hedley Sharpe in this brilliant new British crime series full of stunning twists.

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, you should dig two graves . . .

Day 1. Chloe Todd believes her baby daughter is sleeping peacefully in her pram in the back garden. She lifts away the blanket to check on her — and gasps in shock.

Chloe’s neighbour calls the police. But all is not as it seems . . .

Day 2. Superintendent Hedley Sharpe is called to the city centre. A body is discovered in a cellar beneath an empty shop. A single shot to the head. The victim has been dead at least a year.

Day 3. A second body is found in the cellar next door. Again a single bullet wound in the head. But this time the body is fresh.

Hedley Sharpe doesn’t believe in coincidences. The two murders must be linked. Then he uncovers a connection to housewife Chloe Todd — and the case takes an extraordinary twist.

Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel McLean, Joy Ellis, J.D. Kirk, Rachel Abbott, Elly Griffiths or J.M. Dalgliesh.
