ebook

When closer examination of the corpse reveals death by strangling, Detective Inspector John Jago is called upon to investigate. But few seem to really care about the woman's death – not even her family. As Jago digs deeper he starts to uncover a trail of deception, betrayal, and romantic entanglements...
