Publisher's Summary

Writer and some-time British agent Ingrid Langley is worried about her husband, Patrick. Since leaving the army, his attempts to find a new career are meeting with depressing failure. That is, until he receives an offer from the Home Office to join the police in a fast-track recruitment scheme for ex-servicemen and professionals. The idea seems a fine one, until Patrick is recruited at a higher rank than Detective Chief Inspector James Carrick, their family friend.

When a horrible murder takes place in the neighbourhood, pressure is on to solve the case quickly. But with tensions growing between James and Patrick, and Ingrid struggling to keep the peace, who will be the one to succeed?

A really good listen!

A great story plot involving three of her regular characters. An easy to follow story line with twist and turns along the way.

I highly recommend this author and series.
