Marigolds in October
DI Milly Jenson spent the best part of a year haunted by a case that saw her demoted--one that resulted in the deaths of 3 colleagues, the kidnap victim and the suspect. When a spate of similar kidnappings occur in Perth, Scotland, TPTB send her to work with the local PD.
DCI Craig Makepeace doesn't want some English plod interfering with his case. Never mind one who stuffed up as much as Milly Jenson has. But it seems she knows the killer and may be their only hope.
The problem is his heart is in just as much danger as the victim. Can he keep his professional and personal lives separate? Or are he and Milly on a collision course that could have drastic consequences for everyone?
