"Easy read murder mystery…"
This is a crime novel and another in the series of mysteries involving Geraldine Steel as the lead character. There is a murder investigation that she has been assigned to which very soon becomes a double murder. Red herrings thrive in the murky waters of this novel and the number of suspects arrested grows almost in line with the number of chapters in the book! Apart from trying to solve the seemingly motiveless crimes, Geraldine has to cope with a far from competent new senior officer. She also has the complication of trying to establish who her real mother is (presumably something that has been a running theme in previous Steel mysteries).
