Death Benefit

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

Rose Bennett knows that the love of money can only lead to misery. When that money belongs to the East & Northern Bank, it might even lead to murder.

The storm clouds are already gathering for account manager Toby Dugdale when his cousin Leo Pearson disappears. Suspected of using the bank’s money to shore up Leo’s ailing business, Toby knows his job is on the line unless he can pull off a minor miracle and cover his tracks by the end of the week.

Rose Bennett doesn’t believe in miracles. Hired by the bank to investigate Toby’s obvious breach of trust, she soon discovers that Leo Pearson is nothing but a fraudster, and the evidence suggests that he hasn’t been acting alone.

Called to a bleak and lonely cliff top to investigate a cruel and suspicious death, DI George Mulligan finds himself staring into the smouldering remains of a burnt-out Jaguar saloon and wondering if the elusive Leo Pearson has turned up.

And as Rose attempts to uncover the extent of Leo and Toby’s deceptions, and Mulligan turns up the heat on the victim’s glamorous widow Verity, it soon becomes clear that they both need the answer to the same unfathomable question.

Who wanted Leo Pearson dead so badly they were prepared to resort to murder?
