Dead On Account

(The first book in the Rose Bennett Mystery series)
A novel by

Meet Rose Bennett, the sleuth with a nose for financial crime.

Rose isn’t your usual private investigator. She’s case-hardened to dealing with those who lie and deceive in their pursuit of cold, hard cash, and she’s pretty much accustomed to working alone. She’s had no choice really, because Rose is the investigator the East & Northern Bank calls in when the criminal is on the inside, and being the company mole isn’t much of a way to make friends.

The sleepy Yorkshire town of Market Melbourne is in the midst of a summer heatwave when trainee bank clerk Pandora Mitchell disappears. The event shouldn’t be more to Rose than a headline in the local newspaper. Except that Rose has just arrived from London to investigate an internal bank fraud at the local branch, and the missing girl held information that was vital to her inquiry.

Rose doesn’t believe in co-incidence. Someone at the branch wanted to silence Pandora Mitchell, and as word spreads that Rose is assisting DI George Mulligan to investigate the girl’s disappearance, colleagues at the bank begin to close ranks against her.

But Rose Bennett would value a young girl’s life above financial losses every day of the week. There’s more at stake now than a bank’s reputation, and Rose Bennett doesn’t scare that easily …
