The truth can't stay hidden forever... Detective Superintendent Gil Mayo soon finds himself drawn into a devastating case as an arson attack results in a house being burnt down. Much to the distress of the neighbours, it becomes a big concern that two children might have died, trapped inside the blaze. Yet when the fire brigade manages to get inside to inspect the burnt-out remains of the house, the intrigue only increases with what they find. The body of one man... With no sign of the children and the body not providing any answers, Detective Gil Mayo sets to work on a murder inquiry with his characteristic compulsive attention to detail. Never an easy life, another case also falls into Mayo’s lap but despite his best efforts, both cases seem to be tough to solve. With family connections, past lives and secret deals going on throughout, Mayo and his team struggle to grasp the true nature of both crimes. Only when both crimes seem to lead to the same path, from Poland to wartime England and so to the present day, is Mayo able to unravel the truth once and for all... A Sunset Touches is a chilling mystery filled with twists and turns.

Praise for Majorie Eccles

‘Eccles produces smoothly flowing prose and an atmospheric setting’ - Publishers Weekly ‘Superior police procedural’ - Sunday Telegraph "It all makes for lively entertainment, enhanced by the author's forthright style, some resonant characters, a subdued village ambiance, and a puzzle neatly deconstructed but with minimum help from Lavenstock's likeable police team." - Kirkus Reviews Marjorie Eccles lived for many years in the Midlands and she is the author of many other books and short stories, for which she received the Agatha Christie Short Story Styles Award. Eccles’s books featuring Detective Gil Mayo were also adapted for the BBC.
