Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling series.

In London's fashionable Chelsea, a Halloween bash goes terribly wrong. Emmeline Wardle, daughter of a frozen-foods baron, throws a party that results in the demise of two university schoolmates. Handsome golden boy Trevor Parsons is dead. So is pasty computer nerd Clive French. Both died on the Wardle estate within minutes of one another, and both died the same way - an axe to the skull. Given the social connections of all involved, New Scotland Yard sends a real baron to investigate: Chief Superintendent Anthony Hetheridge, also known as Lord Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave.

This time around, Detective Sergeant Kate Wakefield and her partner, Detective Sergeant Deepal "Paul" Bhar, have their work cut out. Bhar must contend with Emmeline Wardle, a spoiled blonde with a penchant for the finer things, including a certain illegal white powder. Kate must decide if Kyla Sloane, model-pretty and delicate, is being truthful about the events of that fateful night and if Kyla's connection to a former lover of Bhar's means nothing - or everything.

Return to the world of Ice Blue in Blue Murder, the second of the Lord & Lady Hetheridge series. In addition to solving the double murder in Chelsea, Anthony Hetheridge plans on proposing marriage to Kate for the second time. He has the ring. Now all he needs is the proper moment....

A Delightful Crimesolving Team

Any additional comments?

The mystery kept me guessing until close to the end and the story between the older detective and his firebrand sergeant is an interesting development. I find the sergeant really amusing and likable. I was listening with headphones while I moved around the house and my spouse kept interrupting me to ask why I was chucking. I have already downloaded the third book for later this weekend!

wonderful!

This is my new favorite mystery series. The plots are well-done, and the characters make this story shine. Lots of snappy dialog, eccentric English people and institutions, and well-constructed mysteries are the hallmarks of this series, and I loved this entry. It's laugh out loud funny in places, but it's not afraid to go dark. The characters are growing and changing, which is very interesting to watch. I give this a solid 5 stars in every category, with a special mention to the new narrator...he's amazingly good, and has lifted this audio book into the 'stellar' category! }

Another murder mystery with a romance thrown in

okay, things are hotting up between Superintendent Hetheridge and Set Sergeant Wendy Wakefield, and their work colleagues seem to smell a good bit of gossip, although the two are trying to keep things on the down low.
However, police business, that of solving two murders keeps everyone's brains engaged in finding clues, and finding the perpetrator of these two really gruesome murders.
This is turning into a very intriguing series.
