(From the publisher):
Laura Heeley was just an average mother of two, but at the age of thirty-eight her life was swiftly taken from her, stabbed in the back on her way home from bingo. Colinette Jones was a popular attractive and intelligent student, but she has been strangled, her body dumped on the roadside. What is the connection between the two victims? Detective Inspector Charlie Priest must solve the mystery, though with no clear motive and police movements constricted by foot-and-mouth disease, this proves an increasingly furstrating task. As the number of victims mount, it becomes clear to Priest that this could be his biggest challenge yet...
