A missing barrister, a severed thumb and fat chance of finding out the truth.
Ella Fitzwilliam’s world is about to spiral out of control. She’s not cut out to be a private investigator. With little or no aptitude for the job, she’s been sent undercover to expose the hidden lives of two men who meet nearly every week at Buxham’s – a private members’ club where portions are large and secrets are held in strictest confidence.
One of those men is Harry Drysdale, a defence barrister, and the other is Marcus Carver, an eminent surgeon with a tarnished past and much to lose. Ella knows he has unhealthy appetites, she’s sure he’s feeding his perverted habits and putting his female patients at risk but she has to prove it.
When Harry Drysdale goes missing, Konrad Neale TV journalist tries to reveal the truth behind the lies, but some of the secrets start to reveal themselves… and they are big.
I have read a few books by this author and she does write a good story, this one is no exception!
I thought that the plot was superb, I loved the writing style and the characters were excellent, Ella is a fantastic character! This is a crime read with a difference and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
No hesitation in giving this one 5 stars, can’t wait to see what she releases next, if this one is anything to go by, it will be a cracker, her writing is improving and growing book by book for me and this is hands down her best yet!! Very highly recommended!!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Alison Morgan lives in rural Bedfordshire, UK, with her engineer husband and bonkers dog. Life is never boring and they are usually planning the next adventure.
Alison spent several decades working on the front line of mental health services as a specialist nurse and latterly as manager of an early intervention service for first episode psychosis. However, when a heart problem brought her career to a juddering halt, she had to find a way of managing her own sanity, so she sat down to write some useful clinical guidelines for student nurses. Instead, a story that had been lurking in her mind came spewing forth onto the pages of what became her first novel.
Since then she has been unable to stem the flow of ideas and writes full-time from a luxurious shack at the top of the garden.
Alison writes under the name A B Morgan and. within her storylines, she continues to make good use of her years of experience in mental health services, where the truth is often much stranger than fiction.
