A new Detective Inspector Moon novel is out! Blood Ties
It's two years on from the events in the novel The Silent Passage, which saw DI Moon suspended for not following the rules.
He's now back on the job, yet he has a disturbing, nagging feeling that his superiors are waiting for him to make one more mistake so that they can dispense with his services.
A body is discovered hidden under a pile of leaves deep within the centre of some woodland.
The investigation is given to DI Moon and it sets him off on a case that is interesting and filled with a number of surprises.
The victim is fairly rapidly identified as being a local minor villain by the name of Sean Mattox. The cause of death was identified as being a shotgun blas from fairly close quarters.
There are no links established to the place where the victim was found and the forensic evidence is worryingly scant.
As DI Moon proceeds through the investigation he is stymied by one dead end after another.
He again seeks out the assistance of his journalist friend Jo Lyon. As the investigation stumbles on, they uncover a trail that eventually leads to a case involving a missing person and a case of sexual abuse.
Nothing seems to fit, there are reports of strange events in country lanes, but surely these are unrelated to the murder? DI Moon is not so certain and, eventually, he begins to make some rather startling discoveries.
Will he be able to bring the killer of Sean Mattox to justice? Or will his superiors scupper his chances?
This book will make a great stocking filler for all fans of detective novels and it comes from the pen of Jenny Francis, the pen name of writing team Patricia Scudamore and Hilton Catt.
It's published by Matdor at £8.99 and is available for purchase at the That's Books and Entertainment bookshop, which is just here >>>> https://goo.gl/WNNZUm.
