Title: Deadly Investment
Author: Jill Paterson
Stars: 4 stars
Another well written mystery that uses brain power rather than brawn to resolve the murders. DCI Fitzjohn is a Sydney detective who utilizes a sharp mind and even sharper, and ever so subtle, wit as he does battle with villains and the police managerial system alike.
I have rated this book 4 stars.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
It was an accepted fact that Beatrice Maybrick, owner and operator of the Maybrick Literary Agency, accidentally fell to her death. Or did she? Esme Timmons thought not, her suspicions fuelled by a letter she received from Beatrice following the tragic incident. Faced with this dilemma, Esme takes steps to find the killer.
Meanwhile, Detective Chief Inspector Alistair Fitzjohn commences his investigation into the suspicious death of entrepreneur, Preston Alexander. With robbery ruled out as the motive, Fitzjohn is drawn to Preston’s investment portfolio and the Maybrick Literary Agency.
Finding an antiquated establishment where uncertainty prevails following the demise of its owner, Beatrice Maybrick, Fitzjohn asks himself two questions. Why did the high flying investor, Preston Alexander, invest in such a business, and did it lead to his death?
