A Real Shot in the Arm

By Annette Roome

Chris Martin – housewife and mother-of-two – seizes the chance to re-gain her independence by putting her endless housework to one side and fulfilling her adolescent dream of becoming a journalist – much to the dismay of disapproving husband, Keith.

Shortly after taking up a Junior Reporter role at the local newspaper the Tipping Herald, Chris is given an assignment to cover a conference at a local hotel.

But when the hotel becomes a crime scene Chris begins to uncover a very different story to what she had had in mind.

The corpse that was discovered hanging from a fire escape doesn’t look to her like a suicide – heroin addicts don’t OD and then string themselves up.

But who would have been driven to murder within this tight-knit community?

The further Chris gets into the investigation, the more questions arise and the more personal sacrifices she is willing to make.

But is it love of the job or love of a colleague that is keeping Chris away from her husband?

And will she be strong enough to face the truth when it reveals itself?

‘A Real Shot In The Arm’ is an expertly-plotted crime thriller that will keep readers guess from the first page to the last.
