Dark Secrets: A Cavendish & Walker Novel – Book 11
An uninvited guest…a deadly secret….and a terrible crime.
When a well-loved family of five are found dead sitting around their dining table with an untouched meal in front of them, it sends shockwaves throughout the community.
Was it a murder suicide, or was someone else involved?
It’s one of DCI Whitney Walker’s most baffling cases, and even with the help of forensic psychologist Dr Georgina Cavendish, they struggle to find any clues or motives to help them catch the killer.But with a community in mourning and growing pressure to get answers, Cavendish and Walker are forced to go deeper into a murderer’s mind than they’ve ever gone before.
My fifth Sally Rigby blog tour! How exciting. One of my favourite authors featuring one of my favourite duos – Cavendish and Walker. When you get to read a Sally Rigby crime novel you know it’s going to be short, sharp, pacy detective fiction at its best.
And Dark Secrets is no exception. Five victims, all tied up round the dinner table, a fully cooked meal in front of them. But there’s a sixth place set with no body. Who should have been there and were they the killer?
So many suspects. So many motives. But are any of them evil enough to do something as terrible as this? And who was the intended victim and were the others simply collateral damage? This is one of DCI Whitney Walker and forensic psychologist Dr Georgina Cavendish’s most baffling cases.
To the outside world, David Barker was the perfect husband and father but was he really so perfect? And what about his wife – any skeletons hiding in her cupboard? And what’s the relevance of the order in which they were killed or was it just random? George really has her work cut out trying to read the body language of the suspects, but none of them really stand out or appear evil enough to kill three innocent teenagers. But they could just be very clever at hiding something.
The clock is ticking – can Whitney and George solve the murders before the press have a field day and Chief Super ‘Dickhead’ Douglas takes them off the case. Another great read and what’s more, to let you into a little secret, they might just need the help of my favourite character Sebastian Clifford in the next book.
