I have enjoyed all of this authors books, but unfortuatly there are not too many in LP. I like the way each story unfolds, and she makes you feel part of "the team"

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0749082283, Paperback)

One freezing February evening, Filipino barman Ramon witnesses the unthinkable for the second time in his life. Someone is plunging to their death from seven storeys up. It is an old woman, but is her death a mere accident, or something more sinister? Strangely, Ramon's reaction is not to phone the emergency services, rather he heads straight for the apartment from which she has fallen. As if expecting the murderer to still be there, Ramon enters with extreme caution. On discovering that he is indeed alone, rather mysteriously he proceeds to meticulously clean the murder scene, wiping away any trace of foul play. Why should an innocent bystander go to such pains to protect a murderer, or does Ramon have a closer connection to this crime than just that of a mere witness? Curzon's latest mystery unpicks the events and motives that lead up to the seemingly pointless death of a lady already mortally frail, and her fast-paced style keeps the pages turning as the chilling truth is gradually revealed.

Strangely, Ramon's first reaction is not to phone the emergency services, rather he heads straight for the apartment from which the woman has fallen..." "The investigation of the death falls to Superintendent Mike Yeadings and his Thames Valley team. Searching for a link between a teenage drug victim, a missing care assistant and an unidentified corpse, they discover further mysteries behind the glass wall of the luxury penthouse. Other lives are threatened, greed is naked and bitter memories rankle. And for Dr. Carl Stanford, also gazing up from the street below, the sheer glass wall frames the woman he is forced to love in silence whilst his sick wife plays her suicidal games to keep him beside her."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
