This latest book in the Goodhew series came out earlier this month!
A rash of unexplained suicides. An old woman's baffling illness. A brutal murder.
Detective Gary Goodhew must figure out what's connecting them-or die trying . . .
The esteemed Detective Gary Goodhew must solve a disturbing puzzle when he stumbles upon a circle of friends who seem to be afflicted by a plague of teenage suicides. Poor Charlotte Stone . . . her whole life she has been burdened by grief. First her terminally ill mother dies and then, just weeks later two of her childhood friends take their own lives.
Detective Goodhew begins to realize that this web of tragedy is not woven by coincidence. In his search for the link between this series of deaths, Goodhew is forced to recall deeply buried memories of a murder investigation that went cold years ago-memories that lead him to Charlotte Stone. Together they must stop the course of events set in motion years ago . . .
There is always a subtly in Alison's books that makes Goodhew so much more than a typical British cop. In this twisty turvy mystery things are NOT what they appear, both on scene at the death locations, and back at the office. Goodhew has to come to grips with his past as an officer and the trauma he witnessed and solved, and how that could be affecting the cases he is working in the present day. Fans of this series will not be disappointed! In fact, I would say this is the best book of the series so far! It's a true page turner and I found myself staying up late just to see what the end would be! If you are new to the Goodhew series, it's a firecracker of a tale to start with, and I highly recommend it!
