No Sign of Life

By Roger Ormerod

The darkness is closing in…

When ex-policeman Richard Patton’s prized Triumph Stag is stolen, he admits that he probably shouldn’t have left the keys in the car and the garage door unlocked.

But what Patton hopes is a simple case of joy-riding takes a sinister turn when the car is found to have been involved in the death of a young woman.

Patton’s only lead is a photo of the woman – dressed in traditional Swedish costume – found inside the car. On the hunt for answers, Patton and his wife Amelia make the trip to Sweden to discover the woman’s true identity – and what her involvement is with their car.

But Patton and Amelia are soon confronted with the suspicions of the Swedish police, who suspect them of being involved in the crime – even going so far as to suggest that Amelia was driving the car at the time of the accident.

Patton soon finds himself embroiled in case that turns out to be linked to an investigation he led a decade earlier.

Caught in a complex web of murder and deceit, will Patton be able to reveal the truth behind the young woman’s death?

Or will the mystery remain unsolved…?

No Sign of Life is the seventh thrilling instalment of Roger Ormerod’s bestselling Richard and Amelia Patton series.

Roger Ormerod (1920-2005) was a prolific writer of ingenious and densely plotted crime novels – some 35 in all – which were published in the UK and the USA. He lived in Wolverhampton and amongst other things worked as a civil servant and as a Social Security inspector – backgrounds which he made full use of in his fiction, as he did with his hobbies of painting and photography.
