Publisher's Summary

When the body of 20-year-old Julie Cooper is found - her pockets stuffed full of wilting flowers - in an iron-age hill fort on the edge of the fens, Detective Tara Thorpe and her team are called in to investigate. The evidence points to an illicit affair gone wrong…but is there more to the story? 

As always at the Cambridge constabulary, the case turns personal. Detective Blake is exhausted after the arrival of a new baby with wayward wife Babette, and Tara is keen to put as much distance between herself and Blake as she can - both at the station and on the hunt for the killer. Charming rookie officer Jez is the perfect distraction…but is he a little too good to be true? 

Then Tara makes a startling breakthrough when she finds an unsettling family heirloom hidden in the late victim’s bedroom - a golden statue of a sinister-looking cat with emerald eyes. As she traces its origins, Tara begins to realise that Julie’s murder is no one-off crime but a sinister plot with its roots in a terrible secret that was covered up decades earlier. 

Perfect for fans of Faith Martin, Agatha Christie and Joy Ellis.

Was sad when it finished...

Love Lucy Brownhill as the voice of Tara Thorpe. I am a local to Cambridge and these stories set in the area are a treat for me. Bit confused as to why Book 4 is available on Audible before Book 3 Death Comes to Call, but I guess I will hang on for that one. Hope there is a book 5 - I'm keen to know how the story with Tara and Blake develops and how Tara deals with her father.
