Time of Death

(The second book in the Detective Jack Brody series)
A novel by

A glittering life leads to death in a dark alley…

Tamara adores the attention she draws with her tight sequined dresses, her stiletto boots, and her extravagant wig. She always looked better as a woman than she ever did as a man. She loves what Dublin has to offer when night falls: the secret, hidden places, and the men who hit on her. She seeks them out, dressed to kill.

But when she’s found naked in an alley with her throat slit, Det Sergeant Jack Brody of the Major Crimes Investigation Unit discovers Tamara is really William Anderson, a quiet, reserved civil servant.

There’s no shortage of suspects. Anderson was the son of a wealthy woman. Did greed get him killed? Or was it one of the many men he’d deceived with his dangerous double life as a transvestite?

Brody and his team are joined by Paul Quinn, sent on secondment to the MCIU, but Quinn’s ambitions and errors could prove as dangerous to the team as the killer they’re hunting. As the net draws tighter, a ghost from the past plots a revenge that could destroy one of their own…

Time of Death – the second in the gripping crime series featuring DS Jack Brody.
