There are two deaths which have the Yeading police team strung out from the Thames Valley to Amsterdam - but with an unexpected twist, the two seem related and perhaps with common roots.
Excellently written mystery. Loved all of Clare Curzon mysteries.
from the back cover:
Two disturbing deaths have Superintendent Mike Yeading's team spread out from the thames Valley to Amsterdam, looking for answers.
The first victim, Penny Winter, a divorced mother of two, dies as a result of food poisoning. Someone sent her tainted pâté--with intent to kill. The second victim, Anneke Vroom, was a young Dutch national found crammed in an antique mahogany chest. She was shot full of heroin--and pregnant.
As the investigations of the separate incidents develop in sinister parallel, the men and women of the Thames Valley Police Force will confront more untimely death before tangled skeins come together to create a diabolical tapestry for murder.
