Stuart Ingram was once a respected local councillor…
The first time the police knocked on Gina’s door, they arrested her husband.
The second time, they accused him of child abuse.
But he died a guilty man.
This time, the police are here for Gina – to tell her that her husband is dead. Murdered, just two weeks before his trial.
Gina always stood by her husband. Even when everyone else walked away. She believed the trial would clear his name. But now Stuart is dead.
And his wife is the suspect.
It’s a race against time for DC Beth Chamberlain to uncover the truth – especially when a second man turns up dead.
DC Beth Chamberlain Series
Book 1 – The Other Woman
Book 2 – For Better, For Worse
Excellently Plotted & Completely Absorbing!
I’m really surprised that this is only the second outing for Beth Chamberlain – I feel I’ve known her for much longer than that!
Gina Ingram has had an awful time of it lately; with her husband accused of keeping child abuse images on his laptop they have been waiting impatiently for the forthcoming trial to clear his name. When Stuart Ingram is murdered, all hopes of her life returning to normal are lost, and Gina struggles to cope. Whilst DC Beth Chamberlain empathises with Gina, she is definitely a suspect in her husband’s murder. Then a second body is found . . .
This is another excellently plotted crime thriller; whilst the crimes are new and stand-alone, Beth’s story continues on from the first book in series and I look forward to the next one. Full of fabulously created characters, each with their own personalities and traits, everything melds together beautifully to draw the reader in and puzzle over what is happening and why. An intricate story, perfectly plausible, and one which I have found engrossing and very enjoyable. Jane Isaac has the knack of writing realistic and absorbing stories – the type I most definitely want to read, and I’m very happy to give this one 4.5*.
My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley and to Vicky Joss for my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
