The Sideman
by Caro Ramsay

DI Costello has resigned. Convinced that George Haggerty murdered his wife and son despite his cast-iron alibi, Costello has gone solo, determined to expose a ruthless killer without being hampered by police protocol. But is she right about Haggerty’s guilt? And where has she disappeared to?


“Ramsay has once again produced a chilling, can’t-put-it-down read... Another suspenseful read in a consistently gripping series.”


“Though seldom seen, Costello serves as the maypole around which the various subplots entwine. Readers will eagerly await her next outing.”
