Product Description

Looking for a classic murder mystery from an acclaimed crime writer?

Discover Eric Ward, policeman turned lawyer. This beautifully told story, from a time before smart phones and DNA testing, will have you gripped from start to finish.

Rich in characterisation with a complex plot.” Publishers Weekly

Please note this book was first published as “Once Dying, Twice Dead”.

A thriving law practice and a happy marriage are almost enough to convince solicitor Eric Ward he has overcome his painful past and started a new life.

All it takes is the wrong client for it all to unravel.

An investigative journalist beaten to a pulp.

A crooked Newcastle businessman living the high life in France.

A woman from a half-forgotten past.

Former police officer-turned-solicitor Eric Ward represents Eddie Stevens, an investigative reporter on the trail of a hot story. Badly beaten by a local roughneck, Stevens discovers he is on a bigger trail when finds a dead body of an unknown man.

Ward’s investigation leads him to Lansley, a shady Newcastle entrepreneur with criminal ties living in Marseilles. Then a woman from Ward's own half-forgotten past turns up, looking to him to be her saviour. A gruesome revelation in the first case just might be the solution to the second.

Ward quickly discovers excavating the past can be a dangerous business.

Perfect for fans of Peter James, Ruth Rendell, P.D. James and Peter Robinson.

THE DETECTIVE
Eric Ward is forced to retire from the police when he discovers he suffers from glaucoma but qualifies as a solicitor (lawyer) and sets up his practice on the Quayside in Newcastle, where he deals with the seamier side of the law. When he marries a wealthy young woman she attempts to persuade him to settle in Northumberland and work with wealthier clients but he stubbornly refuses to give up his criminal practice in Newcastle. Although she draws him into the world of high finance he still insists on continuing at the Quayside — which causes tensions within his marriage, and lead to fatal consequences.

This fast-paced mystery will have you enthralled from the start. Set in England in the early 1980s, this is the fourth book to feature Eric Ward. More coming soon.
