A Fatal Night by Faith Martin
About The Book
New Year’s Eve, 1962
As a snowstorm rages outside, Oxford high society gathers to ring in the new year at the city’s most exclusive party. This is a soiree no one will forget… not least because a guest is found dead in his car the next morning.
It seems the young man tragically froze to death overnight after crashing into a snowdrift – but when WPC Trudy Loveday and coroner Clement Ryder are called in to investigate, they discover a tangled web of secrets that plainly points to murder.
With everyone telling different stories about that fateful night, only one thing is clear: several people had reason to want the victim dead.
And if Trudy and Clement don’t find the cracks in each lie, the killer will get away with the perfect crime…
Who doesn’t want a winter mystery to disconnect on a stormy night? I’ll admit that if there’s a crime story, I am always in, I am so easy! 😉
This case will be quite interesting to read, a car accident with a victim, but it’s really an accident or a murder?
From the first moment WPC Trudy Loveday and coroner Clement Ryder are called to the scene knowing that this will not be as easy as it seems. Because the victim doesn’t seem to have many friends but a quite long list of possible killers! The business partner, the son/daughter of the girlfriend… and so many, many more!
The mystery is interesting but I enjoyed reading the different characters’ situations and lies, all of them are hiding something and have a good motive to kill. So, the main question will be, who and why now?
Even if this is the 7th book of the Ryder & Loveday Mystery series you can read it as a standalone. The relationship with the characters is well explained and you’ll not feel lost with the mystery, believe me.
This is a quick read, easy to get trapped in the story and try to discover this whodunnit before it’s revealed.
