'A really good third novel that holds water everywhere, impeccable local colour, down-to-earth policement, authentic human frailty, a sting of unscotched wickedness in the tail. Here is an author who can now be bracketed with the best.' CHRISTOPHER WORDSWORTH, THE OBSERVER, on A Talent for Destruction. 'I am always happy to discover a good new detective story talent, and in Sheila Radley we have one to rival that great favourite of mine, Ruth Rendell.' SUSAN HILL, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING on Blood on the Happy Highway. Ziggy and Gladys Crackjaw, in their late seventies, living in squalid isolation on the outskirts of a remote East Anglian village, suddenly disappear. Their pension books on the mantelpiece are indicative of an intended return. Detective Chief Inspector Douglas Quantrill, head of Breckham Market CID, and Hilary Lloyd, his cool and elegant sergeant, are mystified. Do the smears of blood on the floor indicate domestic violence? Finally, the extraordinary story that emerges from the pages of a 'stolen' manuscript lead Quantrill and Lloyd to a solution.
