Sorry, its that time of year again! I am beginning my Christmas promotions, as Matt Hammond told me it was Super Thursday yesterday (so blame him).
My first recommendation is: Epidemic, by John Holt.
Tom Kendall, a down to earth private detective, is asked to investigate the death of a young newspaper reporter. The evidence shows quite clearly that it was an accident: a simple, dreadful accident. That is the finding of the coroner and the local police. Furthermore, there were two witnesses But was it an accident, or was it something more sinister? Against a backdrop of a viral epidemic slowly spreading from Central America, a simple case soon places Kendall up against one of the largest drug companies in the country.
‘Epidemic’ is John’s third novel to feature Tom Kendall.
