A Shroud for Delilah (Detective Webb Murder Mysteries Book 1)
By Anthea Fraser
AN UNPUTDOWNABLE BRITISH CRIME MYSTERY SET IN THE VILLAGES OF SOUTH WEST ENGLAND.
In the small town of Broadminster, Detective David Webb faces a ruthless murderer targeting divorcees.
Webb is called to the home of recently separated forty-year-old Linda Meadowes. Her body has been discovered with a stab wound to the heart.
Despite the brutality of the crime, there are no signs of forced entry or robbery. The only clue left behind is the word ‘Delilah’ scrawled in red lipstick.
What is the significance of the name? And without a murder weapon, how will Webb track down the killer?
The investigation takes an unnerving turn when gruesome objects begin showing up at another woman’s flat: a dead pigeon, a dismembered moth.
Webb fears she may be the next victim.
Perfect for fans of Peter James, Joy Ellis, Ann Cleeves, Roger Silverwood, Roy Lewis, Agatha Christie, or Faith Martin.
