Publisher's Summary

Never underestimate a beautiful woman. You might not live to regret it.

Suicide - the act of taking one’s own life.
Homicide - the act of taking someone else’s.

An unethical banker suffocates. A diamond dealer slits his wrists. A media magnate freezes in the snow. A disgraced CEO inhales exhaust fumes. Four unpopular businessmen, four apparent suicides. Until Interpol find the same DNA at each death.

Beatrice Stubbs, on her first real case since "the incident", arrives in Switzerland to lead the investigation. But there’s more to Zurich than chocolate and charm.

Potential suspects are everywhere, her Swiss counterpart is hostile, and the secretive world of international finance seems beyond the law. Battling impossible odds by day and her own demons at night, Beatrice has never felt so alone.

She isn’t. Someone's watching. 

Someone else who believes in justice.
The poetic kind.

Critic Reviews

"Wow. Wow, wow, wow. This is a GREAT book." (Sheila Bugler, author of Hunting Shadows)

“Behind Closed Doors crackles with human interest, intrigue, and atmosphere. Beatrice and her team go all out to see justice is done. And author JJ Marsh does more than justice to the intelligent heroine who leads this exciting and absorbing chase.” (Libris Reviews)

Loved listening to this book

I can’t wait until more of Beatrice’s adventures are on audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the characters.

Disappointed

Perhaps it would have been better to have read this book. The narrator did not assist me in differentiating many of the characters. However, the conclusion of the story could not have been reasonably anticipated. I was disappointed.

Got a B in your bonnet

once I got acclimatised to the shifts back and forth in time and different perspectives this was a well crafted story. The characterisation was deft enough to seem realistic. The ending flexible enough to point to a future novel. Would recommend similar books by this author based on this first novel.

Terrible

Bonkers plot, the denouement of which you can see coming a mile off, stuffed with ludicrous mistakes “a dead herring” being a particular favourite, the only element of any worth is the talented narrator.
