Death Speaks Softly

(The fourth book in the David Webb series)
A novel by

'A superbly crafted, riveting, page-turner of a read' - Booklist

There were plenty of men, both tutors and post-graduates, who'd been attracted to Arlette Picard.

But when the young French girl disappears from Broadshire University, it sparks one of Chief Inspector Webb's most complex investigations.

She was a vivacious young woman, carefree and loved by many - or was she?

Was her disappearance been caused by jealousy?

It is not just her disappearance that makes Webb uneasy.

On the fringe of his enquires is Professor Warwick, a man whose brilliance teeters on the brink of madness.

And the arrival of the girl's parents from France soon leads to a further tragedy, which Webb is helpless to prevent...

Death Speaks Softly is a gripping crime novel featuring Anthea Fraser's popular detective David Webb.
