This is another of those books that became an instant hit with me.  As soon as I started reading ‘Murder Of A Lover’, I just knew that I would become seriously addicted to this book.  The story hit the ground running and maintained the pace throughout.  Read more here

Linda Strong Book Reviews

The stalker remains at large despite the efforts of Hilary and her boss to catch him in the act…leading to a cliff hangar. Hopefully this will be finalized in the next book of this series. I always look forward to seeing what happens next in Hilary’s exciting life.  Read more here

Joanna Larum’s Reviews

I believe that this is the best of the whole series of books and, with an ending which isn’t a proper ending, leaves me gasping for more and quickly please! Faith Martin’s novels about Hillary Greene have always been page-turners but this one goes a step further and left me with a desire to throw my kindle at the wall because it hasn’t got the next one in the series on it!

Also, Hillary’s stalker is still looming, and he is becoming far more aggressive with his messages and flowers. Her new boss, the ultra yummy Steven Crayle, has devised a plan to pretend that they are a couple to see if a bit of jealousy will draw the stalker out.   Read more here

Nicki’s Book Blog

I love Hillary. She comes across as a likeable
person whilst at the same time taking no nonsense from those around her- either
villains or work colleagues. A girl who calls a spade a shovel. These are always
wonderful easy reads that you can curl up with and enjoy the ride without anything too
gory along the way. An excellent plot, an interesting sub story and a highly enjoyable read.  Read more here

I’ve come to love DI Hillary Greene in all her stories. But I’ve also come to realize that it isn’t just her story. It’s also the story of the victims that need justice. Now she is working cold cases doing what she does best–getting to the bottom of things.   Read more here

The Bookworm Drinketh

DI (or retired DI by this point) Hillary Greene is a likeable and realistic character. She is beautiful and intelligent, even if she is one of the “wrinklies” as Vivienne says. (Apparently if you are 40 or above, this is the club you belong to. That had me laughing!)  Read more here

The suspect list is quite long despite this as we only have his landladies word that no-one else was in the house and that he was a bit of a lover so could possibly have slept with the wrong person’s daughter, or wife, and they could have snuck in and murdered him without anyone noticing.  Read more here

Donna’s Book Blog

I really enjoyed this book and I am really pleased that the series is actually improving as it progressing when after so many books already published they standard could very easily slip or the plots could all intermingle in to one, but I am delighted to say that it certainly wasn’t a case of that with this book!  Read more here


MURDER OF A LOVER.jpgMURDER OF A LOVER by Faith Martin

Available from:  Amazon

Looking for a brilliant best-selling murder mystery with a feisty female detective?

DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE IS SOLVING THE COLD CASES NO ONE ELSE COULD CRACK.

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A REVISED EDITION OF A BOOK FIRST PUBLISHED AS “A NARROW MARGIN OF ERROR.”

Ten years ago, Rowan Thompson was found stabbed to death with a pair of scissors in his student house. It turns out that Rowan was quite a lover, with many disgruntled partners left in his wake.
But did any of them have a strong enough motive to murder him?

Meanwhile. Hillary’s stalker is getting more aggressive with his messages and flowers. And it looks like he may be much, much worse than she thought.

Has Hillary finally bitten off more than she can chew?

Hillary Greene has returned to Thames Valley Police HQ, acting as a consultant for the Crime Review Team, looking into murders which the police have never been able to solve.

She wasn’t sure she wanted to go back. But solving crimes is irresistible for Hillary Greene. And it doesn’t hurt that her new boss is devastatingly handsome.

This is a crime mystery full of well-observed characters, which will have you gripped from start to the absolutely thrilling conclusion.

MURDER OF A LOVER is the thirteenth a series of page-turning crime thrillers set in Oxfordshire.

THE LOCATION
Number 8 Kebler Road is a three-story house in a typical leafy road in Oxford, near South Park. Victorian terraces face each other across the narrow street, whose pavements are interspersed with strategically placed lime trees. Keble College, an unmistakable building of red and white brick is the dominant feature. Quiet, pleasant, it’s in one of the city’s many attractive areas, and dedicated mainly to student digs and private residential properties.

THE DETECTIVE
DI Hillary Greene
An attractive, single woman nearing the landmark age of fifty, Hillary Greene was a police officer of many years’ experience (earning the rank of DI) and came up through the ranks. Consequently, she knew how the system worked, and was always fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. Forced to retire early through no fault of her own, she has now returned to the force as a civilian consultant on cold cases. She still enjoys a rather enigmatic relationship with the wily Commander Marcus Donleavy, but it is her new boss, the very attractive Steven Crayle, who is likely to cause her the most problems now!

Author photoAUTHOR BIO

Faith Martin has been writing for over 25 years, in four genres and under four different pen names. She was born in Oxford and sets most of her crime novels within sight of the city of dreaming spires. A real nature lover and afficionado of the countryside, descriptions of wildlife and native flora often find their way into her manuscripts. Right now, JOFFE BOOKS are re-issuing the DI Hillary Greene novels in new updated editions! The first 13 books in the series are available now.

Her romance novels, written under the name of Maxine Barry, are now available from Corazon Books. IMPOSTERS In PARADISE, and HEART OF FIRE are both out, and others will very quickly become available in the future.

Her first foray into writing ‘spooky’ crime, (and written under the pen name of Jessie Daniels) comes out in November 2017. THE LAVENDER LADY CASEFILE is published by Robert Hale, an imprint of Crowood Press.

As Joyce Cato, she writes more classically-inspired ‘proper’ whodunits. So, if you like an amateur sleuth, plenty of clues and red herrings, plus a baffling murder mystery to solve, these are the books for you.
