A compelling crime novel and a chilling tale of the emotional power of relationships. Cotswold-based crime writer Melissa Craig has acquired a reputation for solving real mysteries. But when her estranged father is found murdered in his own workshop, events come chillingly close to home. To Melissa's horror, fingerprints found on the murder weapon prove to be those of her mother, whom she hasn't seen for almost 30 years. Determined to prove her mother's innocence, Melissa starts her own investigation and finds her father wasn't quite the puritanical pillar of society he purported to be. And then a second victim is found brutally murdered . . .... a stern woman with rimless glasses, a shining face innocent of make-up and grey hair scraped into a bun, spent her days behind a manual typewriter; the ... chairs surrounding a glass-topped table spread with neatly arranged trade magazines and a self-service coffee machine installed in one corner. ... Something that could almost have been mistaken for a smile briefly softened the severe expression.
