Death in a Far Country | [Patricia Hall]

Death in a Far Country

The body of a young woman is found in the Bradfield canal: a new case for DCI Thackeray. But with the entire town focused on the local club's match against Chelsea, no one seems able to identify the girl, let alone give any clue as to how she died. Meanwhile, Thackeray's girlfriend, reporter Laura Ackroyd, stumbles upon evidence of shady dealings by the club's directors and unsavoury goings-on at post-game parties. But in her pursuit of answers, Laura may be putting Thackeray's job and her life in danger.

    "Nicely paced"

    Patricia Hall manages to mixed the personal and public very well. You want to solve the crime but you also care about the lives of everyone involved. Contemprary issues are accuralely dealt with.
    Excellent narration.
