My Rating: 5 out of 5 Pearls
Publication Date: May 21, 2018
DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE IS BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER! And this time she’s going to solve the cold cases which no one else could crack.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A REVISED EDITION OF A BOOK FIRST PUBLISHED AS “A NARROW RETURN.”
Hillary Greene returns to Thames Valley Police HQ, acting as a consultant for the Crime Review Team, looking into murders which the police have never been able to solve.
She wasn’t sure she wanted to go back. But solving crimes is irresistible for Hillary Greene. And it doesn’t hurt that her new boss is devastatingly handsome.
Twenty years ago, mother-of-three Anna McRae was found beaten to death in her kitchen with a rolling pin. She’d been having an affair with her brother-in-law, so the prime suspect was Anna’s sister Debbie. But the evidence never added up.
However as Hillary digs deeper, more secrets and betrayals emerge. Who wanted Anna dead and can Hillary finally bring her justice?
Meanwhile, Hillary is distracted by an unknown admirer, who quickly seems to be going from suitor to stalker.
Can Hillary solve a fiendishly complex case from the past while fending off unwanted attention?
This is the best book that I have read in ages! What a story! Hiliary comes back to work after taking a year off, well she actually retired, or so she thought. Not ever having read this Author or her books, I am now a die hard fan, why didn’t someone tell me about these books?! Thank you Netgalley, for allowing me to peruse new Authors. I honestly have been reading since I was three, always had a book in my hand. Lately however, I am just weary of the same trope over, and over! Then I read this, did not put it down until I was finished! This is a book for people who weary of profanity, (because the Author can’t write), it is cold cases reopened, there is a handsome DI, which she was before she retired, she has me wanting to jump over the desk after him too, all in her imagination! Too funny. I do hope they get together in the next book, that stalker, how scary is that, it gives me the creeps! Every woman who has had one, can empathize with her, and understand the anger, and fear! I loved everything in this book, everything!
I highly recommend! Thank you! Enjoy!
