Blind Date

Blind Date

How do you make people love you? Emma Davey, who loved gemstones and life, found it easy. Everyone loved her. Until someone put a black bin liner over her head and kicked her to death.

For others, the quest is harder. Elisabeth Kennedy, Emma’s older sister and a disgraced ex-police officer, considers herself beyond love or even self-respect. She is haunted by Emma’s death and her own humiliating attempts to lure the killer into a confession. Then she is the victim of a senseless attack which adds physical scars to a fractured spirit. Still convalescent, but wanting to hide from the world, she flees the comfort of her mother’s seaside house for her own eccentric home. High in her disused London belltower, she will be safe and anonymous.

But the safest places are not sacrosanct, especially the human heart, and the search for love, as well as revenge, goes on and on, like the search for hidden treasure. Elisabeth must find the courage to face a terror which is greater by far than loneliness . . .
