Death in Little Venice
A winter’s afternoon on a deserted stretch of canal in Regent’s park, and the discovery of a body under the ‘blow-up’ bridge, the body of a famous MP. A nasty shock for Marnie Walker, but more surprises lie in wait for her. Why do the police try to link her with the murder victim? Who is going to great lengths to try to eliminate her? Why should anyone want to destroy her if she really knows nothing?
Marnie finds herself pursued by unseen predators, who seem to know her every move, read her every thought. Out of her depth in a world of political intrigue and treachery, she is thrown together with the dead man’s best friend, ally and fellow MP in an attempt to get to the bottom of the mystery. But the police appear to regard them both as suspects, despite every effort they make to clear their names. Neither Marnie’s guile, nor the MP’s connections can shake off their pursuers on both sides of the law.
In the heart of London’s Little Venice, in the idyllic setting of her canalside Northamptonshire home and in the corridors of power at Westminster, there seems to be no escape. Sooner or later someone else could become a second victim, and the pursuers have Marnie firmly in their sights.
