DI Mariner Mystery Number 8
When an elderly man dies in a house fire, the investigating officers are left baffled as to whether the blaze was accidental or started deliberately. If arson, was it a random attack – or part of a personal vendetta? It’s not the first time the Shah family has been targeted. At the same time, DI Mariner is searching for a missing bridegroom who has vanished two weeks before his wedding. A case of cold feet? Or is there something more sinister behind his disappearance? Two seemingly unrelated investigations – but there is more to each case than meets the eye. And when a second body is found, events take a decidedly darker turn.
