An executed lecturer; an imploding gang - the fifth investigation for Rosie Gilmour, crime reporter
Crime reporter Rosie Gilmour returns from hiding in Bosnia to a story of a brutal execution. University lecturer Tom Mahoney was shot at point blank range and the killing has all the signs of a hit. But who would want to kill a retired lecturer?
Rosie throws herself into the investigation, looking for a witness that has gone missing. A witness that might hold the key to the story. But she has her own reasons to stay hidden.
As Rosie digs deeper, she finds the story has connections to the Ministry of Defence and MI6 and Mahoney's past is darker than anyone could imagine.
Rosie's running out of time to find out the truth, before Mahoney's killers silence her for good.

I love to read novels that have strong female protagonists and Rose Gilmour is up there with the best of them . . . Smith is also an excellent wordsmith and her stories are wonderfully crafted, as well as being exciting and gripping. - Euro Crime Review
"A Cold Killing" is an excellent new addition to a great series. Very recommended. - Upcoming4me
