Dead Ringer

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

The love of money is the root of all evil. And Rose Bennett knows that sometimes it leads to murder ...

Rose isn't your usual private investigator. She's already case-hardened to dealing with those who lie and deceive in their pursuit of cold, hard cash, and now she's adding murder to the mix.

A cruel November sleet is blowing off the North Sea when debt collector Andy Miller's body is found outside his Scarborough mansion flat, crushed under the wheels of his own BMW. There's no question that Andy was murdered, and as the repercussions of his death ripple out across the bank where he worked, they hit those around him hard. His girlfriend is inconsolable, his best friend is bereft, and his best friend's girlfriend ... well, she used to be Andy's girlfriend, so things are complicated.

It's complicated for Rose Bennett, too. Dispatched north to Scarborough to investigate a customer harassment case against the East & Northern Bank, Andy Miller's death brings a most unwelcome twist to her investigation. When it comes to murder, Rose doesn't claim to be an expert. But she knows about human nature, and she knows when people are lying. And as she steps in to help DI George Mulligan bring Andy's killer to justice, old crimes at the bank begin to surface, and it soon becomes clear that not everyone who claimed to love Andy Miller was telling the truth.
