A TIGHTLY-PLOTTED CRIME THRILLER WITH GREAT CHARACTERS

DETECTIVE MARKHAM RACES TO UNCOVER WHO IS AT THE CENTRE OF A KILLING SPREE

A body is found stuffed in the refrigerator at a doctor’s office in a local community centre. The victim is twenty-something English teacher Rebecca ‘Bex’ Shawcross. The cause of death: strangulation.

Detective Gil Markham and Detective George Noakes discover the victim wasn’t short of enemies. Rumours swirl about her crooked MP father and her own ruthless ambitions.

And no one is afraid to speak ill of the dead.

THEN THE KILLER STRIKES AGAIN

And again.

And again.

Each victim works at the centre, yet they have nothing else in common. An arrogant administrator, a kindly midwife, a gentle, empathetic counsellor.

WHAT IS THE CONNECTION?

Markham and his team race to uncover who will be next on the kill list.

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

The Detectives

DI GILBERT (‘GIL’) MARKHAM
DI 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 prioritises the force’s public image.

DS GEORGE (‘NOAKESY’) NOAKES
DS 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.
