Death of a Secretary

Author(s): Malcolm Forsythe

Location(s): Wivenhoe, Essex

Genre(s): Police Procedural

Era(s): 1990s

Trudy Thornton’s body is run over on the A12 in the early hours of the morning, but DCI Millson’s attempts to find the killer are hampered by her secretive nature. One suspect is her boss, Charles Howard, an Under Secretary of State in the Home Office. Another is the taxi driver who tended to pick her up when she was late coming home.

But then there’s a second murder – and this time, the strange and unpredictable Habenhowe twins are involved. Millson feels sure the two murders are linked, particularly as the Habenhowe girls have already provided one of his suspects with a false alibi.

Can he secure the evidence he needs, before his adversary destroys it?

Death of a Secretary is another tightly plotted and exciting novel from Malcolm Forsythe. It’s the fifth in his popular Millson and Scobie series, though it works equally well as a standalone novel. A great read for fans of the series and for readers who enjoy a high-quality murder-mystery.
