Finishing up our mystery week, is this book:
A grandmother publicly executed, a recluse decapitated in his home. Both perpetrators committed suicide, prepared to die rather than face prosecution. But why?
DI Daniel Sheppard faces this question in his first case since returning to the police service. The guilty no longer a threat, the coroner satisfied; on the surface these cases are sewn up. But, beneath the disarming rural quiet of Blaine, something's lurking.
This story starts off with a punch and doesn't let you go! From what seems like a preposterous link of a grandmother being shot and pushed into a rhino pen, and a very odd decapitation, Sheppard is forced to use every ounce of brain power he and his new team have, in order to try to sort out clues that makes no sense initially. And he does this while is is searching his way back into the job he loves, but had left behind to care for his invalid wife. Once the team starts finding the clues, each has to hurry to find the others, as separately they all have pieces of the puzzles, and ALL are in danger. It's a thrill ride of a mystery that will have you reading LONG into the night! Don't pick this one up unless you can keep reading it til the end!
AND Supreme BONUS- it's on SALE eight now on Amazon for ONLY $1.20!!
How's THAT for an early Easter present???
