Peter Turnbull was born and raised in Yorkshire, England. He has had a variety of jobs--in a former incarnation he was a social worker for twenty-three years, an occupation he gave up to become a full-time writer. ""Fear of Drowning"" is his twelfth novel.
It's another challenging case for the Yorkshire detective duo of Hennessey and Yellich as the pair tackle a decades-old quadruple murder. After an aging drunk comes forward to purge his guilty conscience and confess that he witnessed the murder of a young woman 20 years earlier, Hennessey and Yellich feel defeated almost before they begin working on the case. With an evidence trail gone stone cold after so many years, they know finding the killer will be especially tough. Things can't get much worse--until the weed-filled lot where the young woman was killed yields up not only her remains but also those of three additional victims. An entertaining police procedural featuring good pacing, an intriguing plot, and a detective duo as likable as they are competent. Recommend Hennessey and Yellich to all fans of British procedurals. Emily Melton
