A Cousin Removed (Millson and Scobie Crime Thrillers Book 2)
By Malcolm Forsythe
MRS DOUGLAS DIED ON A PLEASANT SUNDAY AFTERNOON IN JUNE. THE WITNESSES SAID SHE SLIPPED OVERBOARD.
Chief Inspector Millson is not convinced that Daphne Douglas accidentally drowned while cruising on a yacht. He suspects the husband, but can find no motive and no evidence to arrest him.
Meanwhile, with the help of Detective Scobie, he turns his attention to a cold case: the disappearance of a soldier called Stanford Boley, thirty years ago. His mum has never given up hope of finding him alive.
Then, Detective Millson is confronted with another accident. With a string of cases all leading him to Mr. Douglas, this time he knows it’s murder. But can he find the link that proves it?
