A Crime Too Perfect
About the Book
Inspector Clive Channing, a young forensic crime investigator, becomes obsessed with the brutal murder of Loretta Taylor, a famous actress... A case that had gone cold for ten years, and described in the Press as the perfect crime- an assessment that Clive Channing totally rejects. His liaison with attractive Jenny Beauchemin and Aunt Maggie opens doors...
He studies the case file every night before bedtime (as a private personal project) searching for the needle in the haystack that might reopen the case. His first great challenge is to break the murderer's alibi: "I've never set foot in that house or in her bedroom!"
"We shall see," Clive whispers to himself.
