A TIGHTLY-PLOTTED CRIME THRILLER WITH GREAT CHARACTERS

DETECTIVE MARKHAM RACES TO UNCOVER WHO IS PRACTICING THE ART OF MURDER

Esteemed curator Helen Melville is found murdered in Bromgrove Art Gallery ⁠— frozen to death in the textiles conservation freezer.

She had discovered something troubling in the gallery archives shortly beforehand, but her secret died with her. Or did it?

Her murder is just the beginning.

Detective Markham and his team scramble to keep ahead of rumours that the murder is linked to a tragic cold case.

Is someone seeking revenge for an unsolved child abduction at the gallery over sixty years ago?

The brutality escalates. No one is safe in the quiet picture halls. Markham’s investigation reveals a sordid truth. Bromgrove’s temple of culture is awash with bitter rivalries and festering vendettas.

WHO ELSE WILL HAVE A BRUSH WITH DEATH?

Perfect for fans of PD James, Ruth Rendell, Ann Cleeves or Angela Marsons.

The Detectives

DI GILBERT (‘GIL’) MARKHAM
DI Markham is a startlingly talented detective rising through the ranks of Bromgrove CID. He is distant and austere — the product of a profoundly difficult childhood — but has a natural magnetism which inspires loyalty. He clashes with his slippery boss, DCI Sidney, who prioritises the force’s public image.

DS GEORGE (‘NOAKESY’) NOAKES
DS Noakes is a slobbish, uncouth and outspoken Yorkshireman, an object of despair to his superiors. He is, however, also a man of hidden depths, with a sensitive streak and a secret flair for ballroom dancing. Markham sees through his philistinism and they form an unstoppable partnership.

An interesting read, a clever premise and one with wonderful characters. When Gemma a trainee security guard is asked to take something to the walk in freezer when on duty at the art museum, the last thing she expects to find when she opens the door is a body. DI Markham and DS Noakes are on the case and Noakes especially is having somewhat of an education ( so was I -I learnt what Aediculae are !) Years previously a small boy had disappeared in the gallery never to be found. The dead victim Helen had told one of her friends that she was onto solving a mystery but…
