The West Country town of Abbeyford is celebrating its annual pagan festival, when the festivities are interrupted by the discovery of a very decomposed body. Soon, several other bodies are discovered but is it a question of foul play or are these deaths from natural causes?
It's a puzzle that Detective Sergeant Kate Redman and the team could do without, caught up as they are in investigating an unusual series of robberies. Newly single again, Kate also has to cope with her upcoming Inspector exams and a startling announcement from her friend and colleague DI Mark Olbeck…
When a robbery goes horribly wrong, Kate begins to realise that the two cases might be linked. She must use all her experience and intelligence to solve a serious of truly baffling crimes which bring her up against an old adversary from her past…
Chimera is the fifth book in the bestselling series The Kate Redman Mysteries by crime writer Celina Grace, author of Hushabye, Imago and Snarl.
Good development of characters. Personal relationships descriptive and humorous at times. Story moves right along, a good read.
Celina Grace is awesome!
This book was perfect like all her others I've read. I'm surprised so much of her work was offered free on iBooks. Every title I've read is quick, well developed, and I usually finish in one sitting. Read this author, you will not be disappointed!
The mysteries are fun to try to solve. The stories are written in a way the reader can feel part of the team. Kate is a real human with challenges and failings that is refreshing in this genre. I’ll be reading the next book today!
