Murder in the Valleys

Author(s): Pippa McCathie

Location(s): South Wales, Brecon Beacons, Newport

Genre(s): Cosy Mystery

Era(s): Present day

Ex-superintendent Fabia Havard is struggling with civilian life when a local girl is found dead. Out walking near the river running past her small Welsh town, she comes across the body of Amber Morgan. No long in the force, all she can do is call it in. She has mixed feelings when she discovers it is her former colleague, Matt Lambert, newly promoted to chief inspector, who will head up the investigation. Having known the victim Fabia can’t help probing into the murder. However, her inquiries further upset the quiet of the town, not least busybody Rhona Griffiths who was seen arguing with the victim before her death. Fabia’s activity bothers Matt Lambert but time and time again Fabia’s instincts are proved right. He can’t help leaning on her in order to progress the investigation, but that will also involve confronting why she left the force years ago. Can they put their differences aside and work together despite Fabia’s painful past being brought up again? Or will Fabia’s moonlighting put her in danger?
