Death of a Secretary (Millson and Scobie Crime Thrillers Book 5)
By Malcolm Forsythe
On a warm June night, a woman in a white summer dress jumps out of a parked car in the lonely Essex countryside.
Behind her as she walks away, she hears the car’s engine start and the crunch of tyres as it begins to move.
Trudy Thornton continues walking, expecting the car to drive away in the opposite direction. Instead, she realises, it’s coming along the lane towards her.
As she turns, shielding her eyes against the glare of the headlights, the driver revs the engine and accelerates.
Her body is found on the A12. Detective Millson recognises immediately that this isn’t an ordinary hit-and-run.
And the postmortem shows something else: Trudy was two months pregnant.
