See the Dead Birds Fly

(The seventh book in the DI Stella Cole series)
A novel by

Detective Inspector Cole must catch a serial killer. But a dark figure from her past lurks close by

Now happily living in Sweden, Kriminalinspektör Stella Cole faces off against a psychopath who leaves no clues beyond the victims’ bizarrely altered corpses. As the death-toll mounts, Stella reaches into her own murderous past for clues to the killer’s motives. Because she knows exactly how serial killers evade capture…

It’s been over ten years since Stella went on a killing spree, wiping out every member of a brutal conspiracy that murdered her family. Something her new colleagues in the Swedish Police Authority know nothing about. And she wants to keep it that way. But Internal Affairs boss Nikodemus Olsson senses Stella is hiding something and he’ll stop at nothing to sniff it out.

To complicate matters, Stella’s old boyfriend, forensic psychiatrist Jamie Hooke, arrives unexpectedly from England. He says he wants her back and is willing to help her catch the killer to prove it.

Then someone she thought she’d safely put beyond reach comes calling once more. Little by little, Stella’s trust in Jamie, her colleagues, even herself, is eroded. When a shocking development points directly at someone close to Stella, she has just days to discover the killer’s identity. But is her loyalty blinding her to the truth?

Here are a few comments on earlier books in the series…

"Another great book from Andy. Stella is now working and living in Sweden. She ends up with a case on her desk after a dead woman dressed in her wedding dress was found in the altar of a church. The twists and turns make for an interesting read. If you haven't found the Stella Cole series yet it's one I can highly recommend."
Maureen Russell

"What a good move to have Stella seconded to Sweden, giving her fresh fields to challenge her deductive skills, along with different cultural challenges. I found the storyline gripping and with a foreign setting, gave me a better understanding of different procedurals and customs. A superb addition to a great series!"
Colin M. Willmott

"Another Stella Cole murder mystery set in the snow. I loved it that much that it took me a day and a half to read. I won’t give away any spoilers but if you’re a fan you really need to read this ASAP."
Trisha Buckler
