About the Book
Second is publicity-shy artist Ivo Kinnersley whose exhibition it is.
Despite a multitude of motives, and many witnesses, evidence to convict either proves elusive. The discovery of a new lead coincides with Ed’s fortieth birthday, interrupting a weekend of celebrations during which DI Luke Darbyshere learns that Ivo Kinnersley has not only already escaped one murder charge, but also shares a past and a secret with the woman he wants to spend his life with.
Artist, printmaker, family historian and writer, born in Essex and now living in Teesside. The wardrobe having got over-full with prints, I began writing fiction in 2010, initially illustrating 'Edge', then 'One that got away', a short story which spawned three novels written for my own entertainment. Thereafter I began a tale of murder, on a honeymoon cruise, sailing from Edinburgh to Shetland whereupon Luke Darbyshere, an Edinburgh-based detective inspector in Scotland’s Crime and Drugs division, fast became the central character in a series which explores his often-toxic friendship with crime reporter Baz Rose. Murder continued to provide the background against which were enacted the triangles of their lives and their affairs; their relationships with each other, and with the women they loved.
