The untimely death of 26 year-old Jeni Lowe sparks off a murder enquiry
that brings a number of unlikely characters into the same orbit.
Investigating are Detective
Inspector Michael Angel and his team of the South Yorkshire police. In overall
charge and the bane of Angel’s life is Superintendent Harker.
Following up on Jeni’s life takes Angel to an advertising Agency and from there
to a popular television quiz programme You
Wanna Be Rich.
Soon Angel and his team are awash
with eccentric characters, from the television people to old Abercrombie, Jeni’s
neighbour, and a couple who have recently married and purchased an old house, who
believe their house to be haunted by the ghost of an alcoholic dentist and his
family who died in 1760.
A second death leads Angel to
believe that there is a massive fraud behind the murders, but can he uncover
the killer. The story moves along a good pace and kept me guessing to the
end.I was amused by Ahmed and his state
of the art watch, probably not standard issue for undercover work.But the punch line was good.
