Murder Be Hanged

(1992)
(A book in the Detective Superintendent George Rogers series)
A novel by

 
 
Nineteen ninety-three marks the twenty-fifth year that Jonathan Ross has been delighting readers with what Booklist calls his "perennially popular series" featuring Detective Superintendent George Rogers. Murder Be Hanged is his seventeenth Rogers procedural, and by every measure among his best.
As the book opens, Rogers, at odds with both golfing and women, fears he may be entering a mid-life crisis. But his senses are immediately sharpened after a secret night meeting with Willie Sloane, an unpleasant teenager who suspects his stepfather is trying to murder his mother.
Assisted by his elegant second-in-command, Detective Chief Inspector David Lingard - and the too-attractive-for-comfort Inspector Miller - Rogers untangles a confusion of guilt and treachery involving three violent deaths, a spicy family affair, and a moonlit denouement harboring lethal menace against Rogers himself.
