Death Duties

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

There may be seven deadly sins, but in financial sleuth Rose Bennett's world it always seems to be the love of money that leads to murder.

Rose isn't your usual private investigator. She may have a nose for financial crime, but it's her human side that proves most useful when she's called in to tackle her latest case.

Everyone thought that Nathan Kingsley was a local hero. A talented sportsman and an honest businessman, he'd loved and cherished his fiancee Alice and her daughter Olivia since long before they decided to tie the knot. But when someone pays a contract killer to shoot Nathan dead on the day of his wedding, and his devious brother Luke tries to disinherit the grieving Alice of everything Nathan had ever done for her, it begins to look as though Nathan wasn't much of a hero after all.

It's no surprise to Rose Bennett that the East & Northern Bank wants a thorough investigation into Nathan Kingsley's affairs. The violent death of a high profile customer is bound to be bad for business, especially when his bank accounts have shown signs of financial irregularity. But as Rose attempts to untangle Nathan's twisted financial affairs, and DI George Mulligan finds himself out of his depth in the hunt for his killer, a pattern begins to emerge.

Nathan Kingsley was keeping secrets, secrets someone wanted him to carry to the grave. And as those secrets are revealed, and danger comes ever closer to Alice, Olivia and Luke, Rose Bennett finds herself facing the very worst kind of killer, a killer without a conscience.

For the man who murdered Nathan Kingsley, compassion is nothing if the price is right. And duty is just a business obligation, to deliver death to order for whoever is paying the bill.
