A Shaw & Valentine Mystery

Rate this:
At 5.15 p.m. Harvey Ellis was trapped--stranded in a line of eight cars by a blizzard on a Norfolk coast road. At 8.15 p.m. Harvey Ellis was dead; viciously stabbed at the wheel of his truck. His killer has achieved the impossible: striking without being seen, and without leaving a single footprint in the snow. For DI Peter Shaw and DS George Valentine it's only the start of an infuriating investigation. The crime scene is melting, the murderer has vanished, the witnesses are dropping like flies, and the body count is on the rise as suspects are targeted one by one.

Kelly is a good author of crime fiction who just keeps getting better. He focuses on well rounded characters and a wonderful sense of time and place that verges on the poetic. "Death Wore White" is the first book in his second series, set in Kings Lynn. Not for fans of non-stop shoot 'em up action, but an excellent choice for any one who enjoys a police procedural with lots of clues false leads and wonderfully described flawed characters.
