The Lipstick Murders

(The Face of a Murderer)
(Book 25 in the D.I. Angel Mystery series)
A novel by

Bromersley is rocked by murder once again...

DI Michael Angel is called in to investigate once more, but this time there's a twist - the killer's identity is already known.

Frank Arrowsmith has butchered the doctor and nurse who were tending to him post-operation, in cold blood, and is now on the run.

Catching him ought to be a walk in the park for DI Angel... or at least it would be, if the killer wasn't now sporting a transformed face from his time in hospital!

The body count begins rising steadily as the only other person to have seen Arrowsmith's new face is found dead in her apartment.

DI Angel soon begins to ponder the question of how to capture a man who has left all trace of his former life behind.

Michael Angel finds himself tested to the limit as this challenging case has come at the worst possible time - he's being tasked with training cadet Cassandra Jagger, harassed by Detective Superintendent Harker to investigate a prison break, not to mention Mrs Buller-Price's endless list of complaints about a mysterious men loitering on her new property.

Given that Mrs. Buller-Price visited the escapee shortly before the prison break, could these situations have some bearing on one another, and on the larger case that's taking shape?

DI Angel's inquiries lead him to the doors of Moore & Moore's, where he learns about an attack on a former employee who was left for dead.

Is that man now taking revenge?

When one of Moore & Moore's current employees is found dead, DI Angel fears that a ghost is out for payback...

Can he catch the savage killer before more innocent lives are lost?

Or will The Face of a Murderer remain unknown forever... ?
