A Kesley and Lambert novel. Chief Inspector Kesley investigates a murder case that will prove to be one of the most difficult and complex of his career. When Grace Dalton is found dead the morning after celebrating her 70th birthday, she leaves behind a houseful of suspects, all of whom are mentioned in her will, and money seems to be the motive. Could the killer be Esther Milroy, who is discovered to have booked an expensive holiday just prior to the tragedy? Or is Esther’s brother Mathew- facing financial ruin before his stepmother’s death- the more likely suspect? And what about Verity Thorburn, spurned by her lover, firmly believing that if only she had a bigger disposable income the man who got away would come running back to her? DCI Kesley investigates and, this time, it’s personal – the dead woman was a friend. He’ll do everything he can to put her killer behind bars.
