DISCOVER A GRIPPING NEW POLICE PROCEDURAL FROM GEOFFREY OSBORNE
A Jacobean mansion.
A body in a chest.
Sounds like your classic whodunnit.
THIS IS NOT YOUR CLASSIC WHODUNNIT.
Detective Superintendent Ralph Blade never liked Detective Harold Ashington. These two men had history. Ashington never forgave Blade for marrying his former girlfriend, Julie, and he was convinced that Blades’ son was his own.
Now Ashington is dead, murdered at the world-famous Police Staff College in the heart of rural Hampshire. And Julie can’t explain why she had planned to meet him on the night he died.
HAS A FORGOTTEN LOVE TRIANGLE TURNED DEADLY?
But Ashington was a bully and a blackmailer, and widely disliked. There are plenty of other suspects — and all of them are either senior police officers or closely connected to the force.
Then Blade’s prime suspect and one of his team are brutally attacked and left for dead.
CAN BLADE AND HIS NEW SECOND-IN-COMMAND DETECTIVE DOROTHY FRASER UNCOVER WHO HAS MOTIVE, MEANS AND OPPORTUNITY?
Find out in this scintillating new crime drama from Geoffrey Osborne.
Perfect for fans of J.R. Ellis, Faith Martin, Elly Griffiths, Kate Atkinson and Jay Nadal.

Set in Hampshire. we get introduced to D.S. Ralph Blade him and C.S. Harold Ashington both have history, Then Ashington is found in Bramshill murdered Poisoned with Cyanide Ralph’s wife Julie and son Richard are involved and this is all about revenge and threats, and Blade is signed onto the case along side D.I. Dorothy Fraser so he heads off to Bramshill, and another similar murder occurs whats going on? is this a double killing. so look out as this book has a lot of twists, and suspects along the way. all coming out the woodworks, it’s a fabulous who dunnit that I enjoyed tremendously right through.
My first book from this author who i think will go a long way with his writing in the future. And Blade and Fraser have definitely nailed this case and they both make a damned good team, its left me looking forward to more that I will look out for. Brilliant.
