Dark Blue and Dangerous

(A book in the Detective Superintendent George Rogers series)
A novel by

Police Sergeant Christopher Proctor had fooled around with one woman too many. A bit of cuddling with his warm-blooded landlady might be all right, but Proctor also craved the married ladies and listed their talents in a diary that certain husbands might like to get their hands on. When Proctor is found dead in a frozen canal from a blow to the head, it could be an accident. But it's not, it's murder. Detective Superintendent George Rogers, himself no stranger to sexual temptation, is called in to investigate. In a tension-filled 24 hours, Rogers ferrets out the dead policeman's complicated secret life, a sub-rosa existence full of potential murderers. Ambitious, arrogant, intelligent, and utterly unscrupulous, young Proctor leaves behind him many enemies, both personal and professional. Rogers must sift through a maze of wrecked and wobbling marriages, of lonely women, of jealous, callous husbands, and of wary police associates to find the killer. And in the process, Rogers's own emotional life is revealed as none too steady. He loves Bridget Hunter, the beautiful police pathologist, but is strangely attracted to one of his suspects, a woman he may have to arrest even as he fights the urge to climb into her bed. Writing with his usual flair and intimate knowledge of police and medical procedures, Jonathan Ross gives us a new George Rogers mystery that will delight all Rogers connoisseurs and attract others to this complex and alluring detective. Jonathan Ross is the pseudonym of John Rossiter, an ex-Detective Superintendent of Police who is not a full-time writer living in Wiltshire, England. Book Dust Jacket
