A Day For Dying
By Dorothy Simpson
A classic mystery from the Silver Dagger award-winning author.
When Max Jeopard, a charismatic and successful writer, is found floating dead in a swimming pool, it puts a full stop to the party celebrating his engagement to a beautiful heiress. Investigating the suspicious death, Inspector Luke Thanet discovers that Max had more enemies than anyone realised, including his father-in-law and members of his own family. Inspector Thanet knows that he will have to dive under the surface of Max's seemingly perfect life if he is ever going to find out the truth.
