Cold Wrath
by Peter Turnbull

Who was Anthony Garrett? The murder of a reclusive local man draws DCI Hennessey and DS Yellich into a baffling new case.

On a hot summer morning, Miles Law cycles into the village of Millington in the Vale of York, on his way to a few hours’ work as an under gardener at The Grange. But when he arrives, he finds his employer slumped in an armchair in the drawing room, a bullet wound on his forehead. Miles’ employer was a secretive and reclusive man who kept his employees and neighbours at a distance.

Who was Anthony Garrett, and who are the three young, identical-looking blonde women who called at the house a few days before his body was discovered? Detective Chief Inspector George Hennessey and Detective Superintendent Somerled Yellich are soon on the hunt for a ruthless and efficient killer…
