David may have caught his toughest case yet - solving a fifty-year-old murder.

David Lloyd has always cherished the assistance of his former police colleagues, so he can hardly refuse when one calls in a favour. But a murder fifty years cold may prove to be his most difficult case yet, especially with a victim that has never been identified.

After a chance viewing of an old photograph the investigation suddenly has new leads, taking David back to the past and into the realm of a savage serial killer. Can he finally crack the case and give a young woman the justice she deserves?



Even though this story was a short one, I was glad to be back in David Lloyd’s world no matter how briefly. This time he’s investigating a cold case from 1950, prompted by a picture he discovered in his grandmother’s basement while doing a little spring cleaning.

This case was more than cold, almost frigid, which made it even more interesting. David and his friend, Homicide detective John Kimmel, team up to work a murder where the victim was unidentified and had no suspects. Their procedurals had me intrigued, with no choice but to follow along with them. It was baffling but the resolution was satisfying, even though I hadn’t a clue.

Short, sweet and a really good reading experience.

About Liz Strange

Liz was born and raised in Kingston, Ontario where she still resides with her family and a menagerie of pets. When not working, writing or spending time with her family she enjoys reading, watching scary movies, spicy food and hitting the gym.

Liz is a self-confessed sci-fi nerd, loving Star Trek, X-Files, and Torchwood. She also loves anything to do with mythology, history and anthropology, and has a long-standing fascination with ancient Greece and Easter Island.

She has been an avid reader from childhood, and has always been attracted to stories that deal with the darker side of human nature, mysteries, crime, and things that go bump in the night. Her true (and undying) love for vampires was born when she got her hands on a copy of Stephen King’s ‘Salem’s Lot.

Liz loves to hear from her readers and will answer any questions sent her way.

And yes this is her real name!

I LOVE reading and am just crazy about so many series and writers. I’m open to exploring new authors and genres and appreciate those who not only write well but can deliciously craft a character and a tale. Your suggestions for new authors and titles are very much welcomed.

I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
