A Necessary End (Detective Webb Murder Mysteries Book 2)

By Anthea Fraser

AN UNPUTDOWNABLE BRITISH CRIME MYSTERY SET IN THE VILLAGES OF SOUTH WEST ENGLAND.

There’s an uneasy tension in the air at the Pendricks’ New Year’s Eve party.

For months, Nancy and Oliver Pendrick have been fighting about her London-based catering business. Oliver resents her independence. But, wary of repeating the tragic mistakes of his first wife, Nancy refuses to vegetate in the sleepy village of Frecklemarsh.

When the guests arrive, the couple are in the throes of another blazing row, and Oliver storms off into the crowd.

To add fuel to the fire, several old flames have resurfaced for the festivities. And Oliver’s daughter Rose – an eerie replica of her mother – is stirring up ghosts from the past.

So when Nancy’s body turns up several days later, strangled to death and dumped on the side of a secluded country lane, the rumours are set to fly.

Regarding all the party guests as potential suspects, Detective David Webb has his work cut out trying to identify the killer. It seems the Pendricks aren’t the only Frecklemarsh residents with skeletons in the closet, and nobody can be trusted.

Perfect for fans of Peter James, Joy Ellis, Ann Cleeves, Roger Silverwood, Roy Lewis, Agatha Christie, or Faith Martin.
