Content descriptions

General Note:
Sequel to: The postscript murders.
Summary, etc.:
"Is it possible to forget that you've committed a murder? When Cassie Fitzgerald was at school in the late 90s, she and her friends killed a fellow student. Almost twenty years later, Cassie is a happily married mother who loves her job--as a police officer. She closely guards the secret she has all but erased from her memory. One day her husband finally persuades her to go to a school reunion. Cassie catches up with her high-achieving old friends from the Manor Park School--among them two politicians, a rock star, and a famous actress. But then, shockingly, one of them, Garfield Rice, is found dead in the school bathroom, supposedly from a drug overdose. As Garfield was an eminent--and controversial--MP and the investigation is high profile, it's headed by Cassie's new boss, DI Harbinder Kaur, freshly promoted and newly arrived in London. The trouble is, Cassie can't shake the feeling that one of them has killed again. Is Cassie right, or was Garfield murdered by one of his political cronies? It's in Cassie's interest to skew the investigation so that it looks like it has nothing to do with Manor Park and she seems to be succeeding. Until someone else from the reunion is found dead in Bleeding Heart Yard..."-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* [Ed: This review has many sentences with similar syntax: Main clause, adjunct clause. The flow seems a little weird as a result. I edited a couple of spots, but if you or the reviewer could edit a couple more (I'm leery to do it myself, since I'm not so familiar with the plot), that might help with flow.]Harbinder Kaur has been promoted to DI of a murder-investigation team based in West Kensington, London, with her own office and her name on the door. When a member of her team, Cassie Fitzgerald, attends a school reunion, a fellow student, a controversial MP, dies of what appears to be a drug overdose. However, it's determined he was murdered, presumably for political reasons. Cassie finds herself reunited with her old clique, an absorbing assortment of friends. They all share a terrible secret from their school years—something that resulted in the death of one of their classmates—and once Harbinder unearths the story, she is sure there is a connection between that incident and the MP's murder. Griffiths has created a unique character in Harbinder, a 38-year-old gay Sikh woman. There is much to like and admire about her, including her quirks. (Instead of listening to the news, she plays Panda Pop.) This is the third book in the series (after The Postscript Murders, 2020), and, in addition to richly developed characters and a meaty plot, it features a spectacular ending: one of the best rescue scenes ever! Why, one wonders, hasn't even one of Griffiths' three series made it to the big or small screen yet? Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
