Why does a woman stab her wealthy, ageing husband to death in his sleep, before calmly calling the police? Investigating the murder, Detective Inspector Turner and Detective Constable Francis discover a web of evil centred on the picturesque Lancashire town of Medlock Bridge. What appears to be a legitimate business proves to be a cover for depravity. Why does Janice King surrender to the sadistic appetites of her lover, deceiving her adoring husband in the process, and what is the end-game? Is her husband capable of murder? DI Turner believes so. Why does Janice King cut out and conceal a newspaper appeal for information concerning a murdered little girl? Is her lover involved in the child's death? The story follows DI Turner and DC Francis as they consider these questions and find themselves faced with a sordid, cruel reality.

'A Deadly Deception' is my latest novel, and is based on the same detective team that I created for 'Who Killed Clarissa?' I was not interested in writing a simple who-done-it with either book, but wanted to explore the psychological make-up of the characters involved, and to examine some of the difficulties involved in the relationships between complex individuals. I also wanted to intrigue readers and keep them guessing right through to the final chapter. Those who have read 'Clarissa' assure me that those aims were achieved. I hope to repeat that success with 'A Deadly Deception'.
