The 1st Goodhew Novel – Cambridge Blue
Constable and Robinson
Some hide the truth. Some hide from it.
Goodhew hunts it through every page.
DC Gary Goodhew is intelligent, intuitive and the youngest detective at Cambridge’s Parkside Station. He is the first on the scene when the body of a young woman is discovered on Midsummer Common and for the first time in his career is given the chance to work on a murder investigation.
Soon there is an identity for the victim: Lorna Spence. Richard Moran, her boyfriend and employer, has reported her missing and is distraught to discover that she has been killed. He claims she was loved by his staff and his sisters, reserved Alice and vulnerable Jackie. He says she had no enemies but it isn’t long before Goodhew discovers plenty, including her high maintenance colleague Victoria and Goodhew’s reckless former classmate Bryn.
They both swear that they have nothing to do with Lorna’s death but Goodhew knows someone is lying. Then there is another brutal murder and Goodhew knows it is time to use his own initiative to flush out the killer, even though it means risking his job and discovering the truth about the one person he hopes will be innocent.
