This is another engaging and colourful story in the trials and tribulations of DI Hillary Greene. Due to retire in a few weeks, her governor assigns her to a murder, hoping it will make her think twice about leaving the police. To make matters worse, former colleague and thorn in her side, Frank Ross, is now a security guard at the scene of the murder and fast becoming a prime suspect.
As always, the backstory offers as much suspense, tension and entertainment as the murder investigation. Hillary’s involvement in a case involving a detective sergeant she worked with looks like it might come back to bite her, adding to her problems and stress.
It all blends together into another entertaining story that kept me hooked from start to finish. I love the interplay of the main characters, the continuing backstory issues, and Hillary trying to keep all those plates in the air. She’s a terrific character who continues to develop and surprise as the series progresses.
This yet another reason why you should start with the first book in the series to enjoy the many cases and challenges Hillary faces. Reviews for all the previous books are on my website.
Hillary will retire in a few weeks. But can her boss get Hillary to change her mind by putting her on a murder investigation?
The victim is found dead with his head bashed in with a piece of wood. Michael Ivers was a gambler and a notorious womaniser. He had few friends and there is a long list of people who might have wanted him dead.
Hillary wants to solve her final case as a police officer and she has just days left to find out who killed him. To add to her problems, her old enemy, ex-Sergeant Frank Ross is back on the scene and is a prime suspect.
