Can evil lurk in the heart of an ordinary person?
A young woman lies dead. Gabby Peters was strangled in her own home. One year later the killer still has not been caught.
The victim’s parents call in Dusty Kent; an investigative journalist with an impeccable record in solving cold case murders. Dusty’s determination to investigate unresolved crime is fuelled by a personal connection through her own family tragedy.
Is the killer Gabby’s fiancé or one of her friends? Is it the neighbour with the mass of dreadlocks or spiteful old Edna from down the road? They are all hiding secrets. Which one is hiding the worst secret of all?
The hopes of Gabby’s grieving family rest on Dusty Kent. However, this case tests her to the limit and she despairs of ever catching the callous killer who hides in plain sight. Will that killer strike again?
The Watchman of Rothenburg Dies (The Homeswappers Book 1) (affiliate link)
A holiday is a time to relax, unwind and see the sights. But for two adventurous sexagenarians, the sights have a tendency to include dead bodies.
Etta and Dora, both newly retired teachers, travel from their home in Southern Italy to a fairy-tale German town for their first home swap holiday, delighted by their neighbours’ warm welcome. But the welcome turns sour when the Night Watchman of Rothenburg is brutally murdered while his tour group takes photographs nearby, a halberd buried in his chest and a peculiar iron mask by his side.
When the murderer claims a second victim and the son of their hospitable neighbours becomes the number-one suspect, Etta’s analytical mind goes to work. Why was a shame mask left at the scene of each murder? Is there a clandestine trade going on behind the scenes of apparently upstanding local businesses? And why does every lead take her back to the sinister Devil’s Ale pub and the terrifying gang who lurk within?
