Product description

Product Description

Looking for a brilliant best-selling murder mystery with a feisty female detective?

Meet DI HILLARY GREENE, a policewoman struggling to save her career and catch criminals.

Flo Jenkins is found murdered in her armchair, a paperknife sticking out of her chest. The old woman was well liked and nothing seems to have been stolen from her home. And it was common knowledge that she only had weeks to live.

Why kill a dying woman? This is going to be one of the toughest cases yet for Hillary to solve.

Hillary also has to deal with a new colleague who has a terrible temper and a rocky past.

With no forensics, no leads, and only a drug-addict nephew as a suspect, will this be Hillary’s first failure to solve a murder case?

This is a crime mystery full of well-observed characters, which will have you gripped from start to finish.

MURDER AT HOME is the sixth in a series of page-turning crime thrillers set in Oxfordshire.

Perfect for fans of Agatha Christie, Colin Dexter, or Ruth Rendell.

What readers are saying about MURDER AT HOME

“This is the best of the DI Hillary Greene books yet.” Hannelore Cheney

Will have you guessing up to the last minute.” Barbara

“This was a brilliant book, Faith Martin’s best one to date, it was a cracking read. I am giving it a gigantic 5 stars.” Dawn Jones

Each one seems to get better and better. DI Hillary Greene is one of my favorite characters. She's feisty, but fair, and has overcome a lot to get where she is now.” Linda Strong

THE LOCATION
Set in the town of Bicester. England is famous for its picturesque and unique market towns, many of which date back to the Middle Ages, or even further. Traditionally, they were places where farmers met to trade livestock, buy supplies and sell their arable goods. Nowadays, modern markets are often still held in the streets, and in Bicester, where this novel is set, a ‘street market’ happens every Friday. The main street is in fact called Sheep Street, and a modern sculpture of a cluster of sheep pays tribute to the town’s history. Often these old market towns are lined with architecture that spans the centuries — from timber-framed Elizabeth houses, through to the classical lines beloved of the Georgians, to the more ornate houses favoured by the Victorians. Quiet, attractive and often full of character, these old market towns are very desirable places to live.

THE DETECTIVES

DI Hillary Greene
An attractive woman in her forties, Hillary Greene is a police officer of many years’ experience, and came up through the ranks. Consequently, she knows how the system works, and is fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. She is a long-standing friend of her immediate superior officer, 'Mellow' Mallow and enjoys a rather enigmatic relationship with the steely Superintendent Marcus Donleavy. Popular with the rank and file for her no-nonsense attitude and competence.

DCI Philip 'Mellow' Mallow
Mel appreciates Hillary's first-rate ability to solve her cases, and isn't happy about her harassment by the officers from York. Known for his sartorial elegance and laid-back manners, he has a sharp mind, and an eye for the ladies. A good friend and ally for Hillary in her recent tribulations, he's determined to keep his best investigator focused on the problems at hand.
