9781520045320: The Detective's Secret (The Detective's Daughter)

Jack Harmon craves silence and a bird's eye view. From his new home in Palmyra Tower, he can raise binoculars to watch over west London. If he watches for long enough, he will learn who has secrets. He will learn who plans to kill. But Jack does not see everything. October 2013, the month of the great storm of St. Jude; a man dies beneath a late night Piccadilly line train, verdict suicide. Jack's friend Stella Darnell, the detective's daughter, suspects it could have been murder. Now Jack and Stella are stirring up the past with questions that no one wants answered; questions that lead to an unsolved case nearly 20 years old. This is the 3rd story in the Detective's Daughter series.

About the Author:

Lesley Thomson won the People's Book Prize for Fiction in 2010 for A Kind of Vanishing. With an MA in English Literature from Sussex, she guest tutors on Publishing and Crime-Writing at West Dean. She lives in East Sussex with her partner and a raggedy poodle, both of whom are treated to blow by blow accounts of twists in plot at any given time. She doesn't know how they sleep at night.

Review:

'A haunting novel about loss and reconciliation, driven by a simple but clever plot' The Sunday Times. 'A clever mystery plot ... its excellence is in the characters, all credible and memorable' Literary Review. 'A wonderfully eerie London setting and a suitably chilling plot ... Lesley Thomson is now firmly established as one of our leading crime writers' Elly Griffiths. 'It cracks along at a nifty pace, throwing surprises up along the way, and builds to a pulsating finale ... a satisfying plot full of twists and turns that keep you eager to discover more' The Moustachioed Reader. 'With hints of the supernatural and several sneaky red herrings laid in your path to trip you up, this sinister and murderous tale gradually creeps under your skin. Jack and Stella are complex individuals, and as far away from your generic detective as you can possibly get' LoveReading. 'The characters are well-defined, and both Stella and Jack would appear to display classic OCD elements, making them excellent candidates for both cleaning and detective work ... addictive story line' Best Selling Crime Thrillers. 'A very good mystery ... Even without the Ripper, these surroundings exude menace, a feeling that will grip you until the very impressive end' Suspense Magazine. 'As this intriguing plot moves from the 1980s to the present day the reader is treated to haunting descriptions of London, a cast of fascinating characters, and an eerie tale of how the past can wait to impact on the present' Good Book Guide. 'Lesley Thomson's accidental detective Stella is back in this creepy thriller' Diva.
