Fiction, Crime & mystery

From the author of Cambridge Blue comes the fifth crime thriller featuring DC Gary Goodhew.

'Bruce is doing for Cambridge what Colin Dexter did for Oxford with Inspector Morse' Daily Mail

A fresh start in a place you hate. Even tougher with a killer watching...

Jane Osborne left Cambridge and vowed she'd never return. An unexpected twist of fortune results in DC Goodhew bringing her back to the remnants of her old life and a confrontation with the man who killed her sister.

Meanwhile a burning car on the outskirts of Cambridge leads to the discovery of the body of its owner, Paul Marshall. There seems nothing to connect it to either a recent assault, or to Jane Osborne, until a shocking discovery rips Goodhew's investigation apart.

Praise for Cambridge Blue:

'Menacing and insidious, this is a great novel' R J Ellory

'A fast-paced gritty tale guaranteed to have you hooked from beginning to end' Cambridgeshire Pride

'A gripping tale of murder and mystery' Cambridge Style
