A PAST THAT WON’T STAY BURIED

Everyone adores ultra-glam Shirley Bastin, popular dance school owner.

A GRIM DISCOVERY IN THE GARDEN

Then Shirley is found dead, drowned in a water butt, her dainty heels peeking out from the top.

All the evidence suggests her death was a tragic accident. So why does Detective Markham think she was murdered?

Someone at the studio knows more than they’re letting on . . .

And Detectives Markham and Noakes are beginning to think it’s Shirley’s mother, Enid. Enid claims to know a secret. A scandal so shocking it can’t be kept under wraps much longer.

Then the murderer strikes again.

A SECRET WORTH KILLING FOR

How many more people must die to keep his secret?

A classic whodunnit perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, Ann Cleeves, Clare Chase and Betty Rowlands.

THE DETECTIVES
DI GILBERT (“GIL”) MARKHAM
Detective Inspector Markham is a startlingly talented detective rising through the ranks of Bromgrove CID. He is distant and austere — the product of a profoundly difficult childhood — but has a natural magnetism which inspires loyalty. He clashes with his slippery boss, DCI Sidney, who prioritizes the force’s public image.

DS GEORGE (“NOAKESY”) NOAKES
Detective Sergeant Noakes is a slobbish, uncouth and outspoken Yorkshireman, an object of despair to his superiors. He is, however, also a man of hidden depths, with a sensitive streak and a secret flair for ballroom dancing. Markham sees through his philistinism and they form an unstoppable partnership.
