TITLE: SCARED TO LIVE
AUTHOR: STEPHEN BOOTH
Details: nr. 6 Diane Fry and Ben Cooper Mystery
The murder of Rose Sheperd is an unusual one for the Derbyshire police force. This seemingly harmless middle-aged woman is assassinated with three bullets through her open bedroom window.
But when Ben Cooper and his colleagues start to investigate, it turns out that the victim's background is as big a mystery as the question who might have murdered her and why.
Meanwhile, Diane Fry is investigating a house fire in which a woman and her two young sons died.
For a long time, neither investigation appears to be going anywhere, until a sudden discovery links the two crimes, and an international angle is discovered.
Once again a well plotted, well, written and detailed mystery, with a bit of a twist in the tail.
So far, Booth hasn't disappointed me once.
