Caz Frear has done it again with this cracker of a book. DI Cat Kinsella was back with her partner DS Luigi Parnell in this intelligent police procedural.

A murder of a young woman with her head bashed in caused the cops to rush to the investigation. And the Maddens and their extended family were all suspects. The investigation had just started when Cat remembered that one of the Maddens had complained about his wife. And now the same wife did not support his alibi for the murder, and Cat was stumped. What was she missing? Whom should she believe? Who had killed the girl?

The book was a bit slow at the beginning but soon picked up. A clever plot where Cat had to find out who was lying gave it a psychological twist. The turns in the story along with unlikable characters made it easy for me to suspect all of them. Cat and partner Parnell had a great work chemistry, their banter made me smile. Romantic interest with Aiden gave the book a softer edge.

Though it could be read as a standalone, the team would be more interesting if the first book was read. A good murder mystery with a clever plot line solved by hardworking cops made this an exciting read.

I received a free ARC from Edelweiss and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

When DC Cat Kinsella is approached by Joseph Madden for help with his wife, Rachel, there’s not much she can do. Joseph claims that Rachel has been threatening him, but can’t – or won’t – give Cat details as to why. Dismissing it as a marriage on the rocks, Cat forgets about it.

That is until Naomi Lockhart, a young PA, is found dead after a party attended by both Joseph and Rachel, and Joseph is arrested for the murder.

Joseph says his wife is setting him up.
His wife says he didn’t do it.
The trail of evidence leads to even more questions . . .
