ONE OF THE WORLD'S FAVOURITE DETECTIVES RETURNS. A BRAND NEW MYSTERY IN THE MILLION-SELLING SERIES. DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE IS BACK! Eighteen months after Hillary suffered a personal tragedy, she is throwing herself into her work to try to get over it. Former soldier Gareth Proctor joins her team and finds himself quickly growing to enjoy his new environment. The first cold case he works on is the murder of Andrew Feeley. In 2012, this twenty-one-year-old was found dead in the woods near his home, killed by a single stab wound to the chest from his own knife. Andrew was extremely unpopular. He was a drug dealer, pimp and bully. His stepdad was one of the main suspects, as they hated each other and often came to blows. Other suspects include Toby Truman and his mother Debbie. Andrew was responsible for getting Toby hooked on drugs. Given Andrew's criminal background, his murder is thought to be drug-related. But Hillary's not buying it - she knows it's personal. And a search of the Feeleys' garden turns up some chilling evidence. HILLARY GREENE RETURNS TO ONE OF HER TOUGHEST CASES YET. This is a crime mystery full of well-observed characters, which will have you gripped from start to the absolutely thrilling conclusion. Perfect for fans of Betty Rowlands, Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey, J.R. Ellis, Helen Cox, M.C. Beaton, or Clare Chase. What readers are saying about Hillary's Back!

Robin THE DETECTIVE DI Hillary Greene An attractive, single woman just over fifty, Hillary Greene was a police officer of many years' experience (earning the rank of DI) and came up through the ranks. Consequently, she knew how the system worked, and was always fiercely loyal to the force without being blinkered to its faults. Forced to retire early through no fault of her own, she has now returned to the force as a civilian consultant on cold cases.

AN OLD-SCHOOL POLICEMAN WHO SOMETIMES RUBS HIS COLLEAGUES UP THE WRONG WAY. HE'S GOT HIS FLAWS, BUT HE NEVER GIVES UP ON A CASE. Please note this book was first published as "THE UMBRELLA MAN." "Effortlessly blends an intricate puzzle with a contemporary police procedural." Publishers Weekly AN ARSONIST AND MURDERER THREATENS TO SET FIRE TO THE LUXURY HOME OF THE LOCAL MP. Detective Inspector Michael Angel has two suspects. One has completely disappeared, the other is securely locked up in a police cell. A search of the suspect's home reveals a bizarre setup: a dozen umbrellas are suspended from the ceiling, packed with rice. Will the umbrella man be able to execute his threat while still in police custody? MEANWHILE, IMELDA WILDE, A FAMOUS MAGICIAN'S BEAUTIFUL ASSISTANT, IS MURDERED. It appears to be a copy of an unsolved crime committed twenty-five years ago. What's the connection between the two disparate cases? Michael Angel must race against the clock to unravel this baffling mystery. Perfect for fans of R.D. Wingfield, Colin Dexter, Peter Robinson, Reginald Hill, and Agatha Christie. THE DETECTIVE Michael Angel is over fifty, married to Mary. They don't have any children. They are a devoted couple but the relationship sometimes breaks down due to his job or due to the problems of Mary's sister who lives in Edinburgh and imposes on their easygoing natures. Michael works at the small local police station and is devoted to defeating crime, murder, and dishonesty of any sort and has no personal ambition beyond being a good husband and a successful detective. He doesn't want promotion with all the routine office work and stress that goes with it. He is incorruptible but always short of money. He is always at odds with his immediate chief, Detective Superintendent Horace Harker, who is lazy, a hypochondriac and not a bit interested in assisting Angel in serious police work. THE SETTING Bromersley is a market town at the bottom of the Pennines surrounded by stone and hawthorn-edged fields grazed by cattle and sheep. It is cold as anywhere in the winter but its closeness to the mountains protects it from many gales and heavy falls of snow. The town's industry today includes the manufacture of ball bearings and whisky bottles, and a huge brewery produces Bromersley's best bitter, which is considered the finest beer for miles around. Wednesday is market day, and the town centre is host to the frequent cries of stall-holders hawking their wares while the enticing smells of cheeses, coffees, foreign spices and fish and chips tempt your taste buds as you wander through the stalls. The police always find it difficult to catch pilferers and pickpockets in such a crowd. Bromersley folk are easy to befriend but many of the old people are stubborn and still buy their fruit and veg in pounds and ounces, not kilos and grams. Praise for Roger Silverwood "Solid plotting, unpretentious writing, thoroughly reliable entertainment." Morning Star "A cast of characters you really want to populate with familiar faces of actors you see each week on TV - great fun. Angel is terrific."
