Two Dead Men
In London’s fashionable Chelsea, a Halloween bash goes terribly wrong. Emmeline Wardle, daughter of a frozen foods baron, throws a party which results in the demise of two university schoolmates. Handsome golden boy Trevor Parsons is dead. So is pasty computer nerd Clive French. Both died on the Wardle estate within minutes of one another, and both died the same way – an axe to the skull. Given the social connections of all involved, New Scotland Yard sends a real baron to investigate: Chief Superintendent Anthony Hetheridge, also known as Lord Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave.
Two Prime Suspects
This time around, Detective Sergeant Kate Wakefield and her partner, Detective Sergeant Deepal “Paul” Bhar, have their work cut out. Bhar must contend with Emmeline Wardle, a spoiled blonde with a penchant for the finer things, including a certain illegal white powder. Kate must decide if Kyla Sloane, model-pretty and delicate, is being truthful about the events of that fateful night. And if Kyla’s connection to a former lover of Bhar’s means nothing – or everything.

A Great Crime Fighting Trio
I have really enjoyed this series. It is great to see the team together again. Tony, Kate and Paul always have fun interactions while they work to solve murders. They are very different from one another in terms of their backgrounds but have the same drive to solve crimes regardless of the obstacles. In this second book in the series, we get to spend more time meeting Kate's sister and Paul's mother and learn a great deal about Paul's past. It explains a lot of his behavior.
Kate is just coming back after recovering from her miscarriage. Tony has been eager for her return. A double murder at a home hosting a Halloween party is just what she needs to get back in the game. We have plenty of upper-class suspects including an especially intriguing aristocrat who was acquitted of a triple murder and is a neighbor. There are lots of secrets being kept by this group and being selectively revealed to the detectives. Like in the first book, one member of the team has close ties to the case that could lead to issues.
I really like how the author alternates between points of view among the three. It definitely gets you in their heads like no other technique could. Learning more about Kate and Paul is especially helpful in understanding their current behaviors and their insecurities. Tony continues to not be shy about pursuing Kate regardless of the consequences. He knows what he wants and is at the point in his life where he is not going to compromise and accept less.
I enjoy the mystery of the crime but it is truly the relationships that make the experience so enjoyable. In the end, the author ties the story together well and makes you eager for their next adventure. I received a copy in return for a honest review.
Interesting and entertaining
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I liked this story better than the first one. The same great characters were still there, but the storyline wax able took move more quickly, since there was no need for a long introduction of each character. I also liked how it started pretty close to where the other story ended.
A good mystery romance.
May be a bit slow but good story.
Like the characters and the hint of romance.
In all a good mystery romance.
