The grieving widow. The other woman. Which one is which?
When Cameron Swift is shot and killed outside his family home, DC Beth Chamberlain is appointed Family Liaison Officer. Her role is to support the family – and investigate them.
Monika, Cameron’s partner and mother of two sons, had to be prised off his lifeless body after she discovered him. She has no idea why anyone would target Cameron.
Beth can understand Monika’s confusion. To everyone in their affluent community, Monika and her family seemed just like any other. But then Beth gets a call.
Sara is on holiday with her daughters when she sees the news. She calls the police in the UK, outraged that no one has contacted her to let her know or offer support. After all, she and Cameron had been together for the last seven years.
Until Cameron died, Monika and Sara had no idea each other existed.
As the case unfolds, Beth discovers that nothing is quite as it appears and everyone, it seems, has secrets. Especially the dead…
Gripping .. Full of Surprises!
Now here’s a book full of surprises – and they just keep on coming!
Cameron Swift is heading off to play golf one Sunday morning when he is murdered, right outside his own home. DC Beth Chamberlain finds herself appointed to keep the family in touch with the investigation and pick up any information she can to help the team.
What a great start to a series! This one certainly kept me on my toes, guessing all the way through. This is a carefully plotted story, beautifully written with excellent true-to-life characters and bodes well for future book featuring Beth Chamberlain. A gripping read and, frankly, I had no idea how it was going to end – it was a revelation, and then some. But even after the crime is wrapped up, the author finishes the story off – just as I like. It annoys me when there are loose ends, but no such worries here. An excellent read which I’m happy to recommend and give 4.5*.
My thanks to publisher Aria for my copy via NetGalley, and to Vicky Joss for my place on this blog tour. As always, this is my honest, original and unbiased review.
