1st in the Insp. Jess Campbell & Super Ian Carter series
Mystery Lovers Review:
Lucas Burton hates the countryside. To him it's nothing but mud, muck and dead things. And he's right.
When he turns up at a deserted farm in the middle of nowhere hoping to conduct a business deal he stumbles across the body of a girl. And that's just the start of his bad luck: Penny Gower from the local stables has spotted his silver Mercedes leaving the scene of the crime. Suddenly, for Lucas, things are looking very bleak indeed...Inspector Jess Campbell is on the case, but with few leads and a new superintendent, Ian Carter, breathing down her neck, she's beginning to feel the pressure.
