A Breach of Trust

(2015)
(The fifth book in the DCI John Blizzard series)
A novel by

 
 
A corrupt wealthy industrialist is found dead. When his family shed crocodile tears, DCI Blizzard turns the screw.

The closure of the Smarts factory in a northern industrial city put many people out of work. Nothing was ever proven, but suspicions of serious financial corruption were rife. So when the aged owner is found dead in his home, DCI John Blizzard seizes the opportunity to investigate further.

When natural causes are ruled out and a murder inquiry is opened, Dennis Smart’s family are the obvious suspects. Yet each has an alibi, and when the net is widened, any number of the former factory employees might have sufficient motive.

The subsequent investigation centres on a small group of left-wing dropouts who are locals in a backstreet pub. Will Detective Chief Inspector Blizzard ferret them out? And will he collar them for the crime? Or is he being led up the garden path whilst the real killer gets off scot free?

A Breach of Trust is a page-turner full of twists that will keep you guessing until the very end. It is also available in paperback.

You can enjoy A Breach of Trust as a standalone but it will make you want to read the other books in the series. The full list of books, in order of publication, is:

1. THE LONG DEAD
2. STRANGE LITTLE GIRL
3. THE RAILWAY MAN
4. THE SECRETS MAN
5. A BREACH OF TRUST
6. DEATH LIST
