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.
