When a body is found in a remote Scottish glen, DI Munro comes out of retirement to investigate.
The Police chief wants everything wrapped up before the upcoming regatta, but the locals are remarkably unforthcoming with helpful information.
Sassy and quick, London detective sergeant Charlotte West is roped in by DI Munro to help solve what is now a murder case.
It is good police work that will unravel the truth behind the crime, but not without ruffling a few feathers first.
Will the killer escape the sharp-witted detectives’ grasp?
If you enjoy a whodunnit with a twist, this atmospheric novel is for you. Set in the coastal town of Inverkip in the north-west of Scotland, AVARICE is a straightforward murder mystery with more twists and turns than Spaghetti Junction. No blood, no gore, no serial killers! But it’s a cracker.
