The Malcontenta

(1995)
(The second book in the Brock And Kolla series)
A novel by

 
 
When the apparent suicide of a young physiotherapist starts to take on more sinister aspects, Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla jumps at the chance to investigate. Soon, questions arise: is a cover-up taking place to protect the reputations of wealthy clients? Was it really suicide or-murder? Suddenly taken off the case, Kathy turns to Detective Chief Inspector Brock of Scotland Yard. But when Brock checks himself in as a patient, they both learn that spas are not always good for your health-especially if you're a target for murder. This is the second appearance of Kathy and Brock, introduced in Maitland's highly acclaimed first mystery, The Marx Sisters. The Malcontenta is another fast-paced and suspenseful story from a shining new light on the mystery scene.
