Death Of A Temptress

By P.F. Ford

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


Ruth Thornhill went missing six months ago. According to the evidence, she ran off with a man, so the Met closed the case. However, Ruth’s sister Beverley refuses to give up, and Beverley has friends in high places. DS Dave Slater’s enquiries soon find inconsistencies in the original investigation, and after a near-fatal encounter with a London bus, he realises the stakes are far higher than he imagined. Someone wants him to disappear. An unlikely ally, in the form of fellow scapegoat DS Norman Norman, helps him uncover disturbing connections between the missing woman, a Chinese businessman, a glossy magazine, an online escort agency, a top London banker and senior officers from London’s Serious Crime Unit. The two uncover a mire of corruption, blackmail, deception and a most cunning murder. The evidence stacks up against one particular suspect and Slater and Norman close in. But as with most things in Slater’s life, nothing is ever simple.

Having spent most of his life trying to be the person everyone else wanted him to be, P.F. (Peter) Ford was a late starter when it came to writing. But then a few years ago, having been unhappy for over 50 years, he decided he had no intention of carrying on that way. Fast forward a few years and you find a man transformed. Having found a partner (now wife) who believes dreamers should be encouraged and not denied, he was finally able to write. Now, happily settled in Wales, and no longer constrained by the idea of having to keep everyone else happy, Peter is blissfully happy being himself, sharing his life with wife Mary and their three dogs, and living his dream writing fiction.
