When a woman is found with a bloody gash on her scalp and a plastic bag over her head, there’s no question that she was murdered. But Det. Inspector Luke Thanet, a veteran homicide investigator whose cases have carried him across the sprawling Kentish countryside, is about to discover a mystery far more shocking than anything he’s encountered before.
The victim is Perdita Master, an artist with a terminally ill mother and a husband who threatened violence when she demanded a divorce. The husband is the natural suspect, but as Thanet and his partner, the dogged Sgt. Mike Lineham, dig into the case, they will discover a tantalizing connection to a powerful local barrister—and a secret that many people might have killed for.
Charming, stylish, and endlessly absorbing, the CWA Silver Dagger–winning Luke Thanet mysteries are some of the best English police procedurals ever written.
Doomed to Die is the 10th book in the Inspector Thanet Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
