And then the British spy services get involved . . . Will Crow have his investigation shut down before he can catch the murderer.

MORE COMING SOON!
This is the fourth book in the Inspector Crow series, and each book keeps getting better.
In this book Crow is sent to Yorkshire to investigate the murder of a
journalist who is beaten to death in the bungalow he has been renting.
The investigation leads Crow to the partner of the landlady of the local pub as it transpires the dead journalist has been very friendly with her and vanished from the scene.
After the post-mortem throws up some interesting facts Inspector Crow has to re-think everything and go back to the beginning by investigating what the journalist was reporting on.
Overall there were enough red herrings and twists to keep me entertained and guessing who the murderer(s) were until the very end.
