A brand new DCI Jude Satterthwaite crime mystery from the best selling Jo Allen.
When one-hundred-year-old Violet Ross is found dead at Eden’s End, a luxury care home hidden in a secluded nook of the Lake District’s Eden Valley it’s tragic, of course, but not unexpected. Except for the instantly recognisable look in her lifeless eyes… that of pure terror.
DCI Jude Satterthwaite heads up the investigation, but as the death’s start to mount up it’s clear that he, and DS Ashleigh O’Halloran need to uncover a long-buried secret before the killer strikes again…
The second in the unmissable, Lake District-set, DCI Jude Satterthwaite series.
#2 In The DCI Jude Sattherthwaite series, but I found it easy to read as a stand-alone.
Set in beautiful Cumbria and when Violet, a resident at Eden’s End Care Home, is found dead it’s believed to be natural causes. But someone says it was murder and so an autopsy is completed and this confirms this was not a natural death.
Who would want to kill a 100 year old, defenceless woman? But when more bodies turn up the investigation begins.
This is a murder mystery with a police procedural edge. I really enjoyed how Violet’s story is told, going back to her life and love during WW2. Does her death have something to do with her past?
With plenty of suspects, great characters and a clever, twisty plot to keep any fan of a good murder mystery happy. Thoroughly entertaining.
Thank you to Vicky at Aria Fiction for the opportunity to take part in this blog tour, for the promotional material and a free ecopy of the book. This is my honest and unbiased review.
