One Victim. One Killer. A Puppetmaster Pulling The Strings.
A layer of freezing fog hovered on the ground, nipping at Andrea Rossi's ankles as she ran along the secluded trail in Kensington Gardens. It was no ordinary day. In a few hours time, she would be facing a prolific child killer in a legal battle that would change her career, forever. But Andrea would never see the inside of a courtroom, again. Nor would she reach the end of her favourite trail. A few more paces, and Andrea Rossi would be dead.
DI Dalton and DS Nash embark on an investigation to find the killer. They do not have to look very far before they come across Mark Templeton, a man with a history of violence and the father of a murdered child. He has motive and an insurmountable rage making him highly capable of carrying out the brutal slaying. Grace and Ryan proceed with caution and question him to find he has no sympathy for the young Barrister's death. But as they gather more information, they unearth more suspects and more motives. Initially obvious theories become increasingly blurred as details of Andrea's private life gradually unfold. Did Mark Templeton really kill her for defending his son's killer, or are there far deeper and darker motives at play?
Nest Of Vipers is the fourth book in the Dalton & Nash series and is a traditional British Detective mystery. Written in a true 'whodunnit' style, this latest instalment in the series will have you turning the pages to discover the killer's identity, only to be proved wrong in a breathtaking final twist.
