Stone & Oliver Book 3


Some secrets are too deadly to bury


When a man is found murdered in Newcastle city centre, it looks like a botched robber to DCI David Stone.  But when DS Frankie Oliver arrives at the crime scene, she gets more than she bargained for.

She IDs the victim as court reporter Chris Adams but with no eyewitnesses, the Murder Investigation Team are stumped.  They discover that Adams was working on a scoop that would make his name. But what was the story?

As Stone and Oliver battle to solve the case, they uncover a link to a missing woman, and their worst fears are realised – this case goes far deeper than they could ever have imagined…
