The Bluebell Killer
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Bluebell Killer
A mutilated body was certainly not what the quiet, affluent town of Kings Richington expected to wake up to on a Sunday morning… Crime, especially brutal murder, was not welcome or expected amongst such high-ranking residents as high court judges and MPs. DI Jack Dawes is assigned the case. Working alongside him are Detective Sergeant Malone, or “Bugsy” to his colleagues, and Detective Constable Pinkney, a fast-track graduate eager to get started in the fast-paced world of the police force. He soon finds out paperwork makes up a larger part of the job than high-speed car chases, especially when their headless corpse provides the threesome with no leads. Pressure from above to tread carefully around the privileged residents of Kings Richington makes the job harder and frustrating. How can Jack infiltrate their closed-off circles? The answer comes from his wife Corrie, who paves the way into the lesser-seen world of Kings Richington through her catering service, Coriander’s Cuisine, caterer to their dinner parties, as well as the eternally chic Madame Gloria De Vere’s Académie de Danse.Yet the more Jack and his team find out about the notoriously private residents, the murkier the investigation becomes. Behind the glamour lies a Kings Richington rarely seen, all connected mysteriously to the intriguing Académie de Danse. As the corpses pile up and blackmail begins, Jack is determined to discover the truth about these people and their real origins.But will he discover it in time? The Bluebell Killer is a chilling tale of mystery and lies, set in an unassuming small town.
