Derek Tridgell dies accusing someone, unknown, of murdering someone, unspecified. Is this just the result of the strong painkillers he was on or is this a genuine accusation? Sloan and Crosby must try and investigate the dead man's life to see if they can work out which of the deaths which have affected him over the last few years could have been murder and if it was murder, who was responsible? The dead man's son, Paul isn't making things easy for them as he seems to be antagonistic and could be lying.
This entertaining mystery has quite a complex plot and I certainly didn't work out who was responsible for the murder or who was murdered. Taking in industrial shenanigans, people who seem to be hiding something which may or may not be connected with the crime and a positively hair raising finale this book certainly kept me reading.
I have read all the previous Sloan and Crosby mysteries and thoroughly enjoyed them and this is, in my opinion, one of the best. I love the wry humour of the writing and the characters of Sloan and Crosby and the irascible Superintendent Leeyes who loves attending evening classes. If you like mysteries without graphic violence or bad language then this series may interest you. They can be read in any order.
