A Late Phoenix: A C.D. Sloan Mystery | [Catherine Aird]

A Late Phoenix: A C.D. Sloan Mystery

Decades ago, Germans bombed the houses in the village at Lamb Lane. Now, redevelopment is underway. Under the wreckage, a workman's pickaxe strikes the skeleton of a pregnant girl, a bullet lodged in her spine, and he finds the skeleton of her unborn baby, too. The trail is definitely stone cold when C.D. Sloan takes on this case. Can he solve the puzzle of this crime on so little evidence...and with such old clues?

Publisher's Summary

Decades ago, Germans bombed the houses in the village at Lamb Lane. Now, redevelopment is underway. Under the wreckage, a workman's pickaxe strikes the skeleton of a pregnant girl, a bullet lodged in her spine, and he finds the skeleton of her unborn baby, too. The trail is definitely stone cold when C.D. Sloan takes on this case. Can he solve the puzzle of this crime on so little evidence...and with such old clues? Does anyone now alive remember any details pertinent to this young woman's remains and the circumstances under which they have taken so long to come to light?

    "Another good mystery"

    The reoccurring characters as usual are interesting and provide enough comic relief in dry humor that you don't think hideous things are being investigated.

    Story
    "Might Be A Better "Read""

    It took me 8 months to finish this book. My conclusion is that this story just wasn't as compelling for me as other authors, such as Debra Crombie and Margaret Maron, that I enjoy.

    In the past I have read and enjoyed books by this author. It may be that her writing style works better for me if I'm reading rather than listening.
