About The Book
He wasn’t always a killer. At first, he just wanted to talk. D.C. Charlie Stafford has an odd case on her hands. And it may be her toughest one yet.
A burglar who isn’t interested in valuables, the subject of Operation Greystream is a strange but smooth operator. In the dead of the night, gloved and masked, he visits the elderly. He doesn’t hurt them and, if they beg, he won’t take anything of real value.
All he wants is conversation… and they’re powerless to refuse him.
But then 87 – year-old Florence Briarly is found by her friend, cold to the touch and neatly, too neatly, tucked into bed. And Charlie realises this case has taken a sinister, urgent turn. Now this stealthy burglar has had a taste of murder, it’s only a matter of time until he craves it again…
This had been a police procedural investigation, interesting and original that will be a delight for any crime lover!
The story is centered in a robbery that has gone wrong, the police will try to discover who and why there’s a victim in a “simple” robbery. Because this is not the first assault that this attacker has done, only the first one with a victim. Why? There will be another case that would make the police quite ambiguous about the resolution of the case, it’s the same perpetrator or simply a coincidence? Of course you’ll have to read the case to discover the truth! 😉
This is one of those books that there’s a very detailed police investigation; clues, interrogatories, investigation… and in the end a good way to solve the case, which will leave everyone satisfied.
This is the fifth case of the DC Charlotte Stafford, you can read the book as standalone, but there are some character background and connections that will be missed, but I am sure you’ll like it no matter what.
Charlotte is the team leader of the case and it makes the story real and interesting, she shows us her point of view but at the same time it makes you part of the story too. And let me say that after reading this book I will follow her next cases for sure.
I liked that this was not the typical case, why someone that started only robbing finish killing? There has to be something more, am I right? They target only elderly, and they never hurt anyone before. That’s why I liked the story, it felt real and human, perfect for any crime lover!
