About the Author

Alison Bruce was born in Surrey in 1966 and moved to Cambridge in 1998. She has learnt about Cambridge and East Anglia from researching her two previous non-fiction books, Cambridgeshire Murders (Sutton Publishing) and The Billingtons, Death in the Family (also published by Sutton). She is married with two small children and enjoys horse riding and dancing, when not working on her new crime fiction series featuring DC Gary Goodhew.


Gary Goodhew, a young hotshot detective, gets his first murder gig in Cambridge, England, in nonfiction author Bruce's (Cambridgeshire Murders) first mystery. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

In Bruce's assured debut, idealistic 25-year-old Gary Goodhew, recently promoted to detective constable at Cambridge's Parkside Station, gets a chance to prove himself to Parkside's seasoned veterans after the discovery of a young woman's body atop a heap of trash bags on Midsummer Common. Like many a British police procedural, the novel opens with a flurry of activity and the introduction of numerous characters, but the action soon slows to a series of scenes, marked by descriptive passages full of precise details, in which the victim's actions leading to her murder come into focus. Fortunately, halfway through, the pace picks up as the workaholic Goodhew pursues every twist in the case. By the end, readers will be flipping back to the beginning to suss out those clues that they may have missed. Bruce is also the author of two works of nonfiction, including Cambridgeshire Murders. (Jan.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

A gripping tale of murder and mystery. * Cambridge Style * DC Gary Goodhew could just develop into a worthy succesor to those venerables of the police procedural now drawing their pensions. * Tribune * Meaty and deeply plotted. * Morning Star * A fast-paced gritty tale guaranteed to have you hooked from beginning to end. * Cambridgeshire Pride * An exciting debut from a very promising new talent. * Paul Johnson * Menacing and insidious, this is a great novel. * R J Ellory *
