The Second Jeopardy
By Roger Ormerod
Four years ago, a young woman named Angela Reed was murdered. A twist of fate, Harry Hodnutt steals her car to escape from the robbery he has just committed and becomes a prime suspect. Whilst he is cleared of murder, Harry spends four years in prison for the robbery. Now he is out, still haunted by Angela’s death and threatened by a man claiming to be her husband. Harry forms an unlikely partnership with Virginia Brent: they delve back into Angela’s murder, digging up dirt on Harry’s old partners in crime and Angela’s double life.
