A mysterious dalliance, an apparent suicide, and a female detective who shouldn’t be underestimated.

A teenage boy is found hanged in a secluded area of parkland. A consensus quickly emerges within the police that it is a tragic case of suicide. DC Ruby Knight is not so sure.

But, already in trouble with her superiors for her maverick behaviour, Ruby has trouble making her case heard. In fact, she is threatened with a transfer to another part of the force.

Exploring the boy’s background, she makes a startling discovery. But Ruby realises she must build bridges with her colleagues if anyone is to take her seriously.

If she can prove a murder has taken place, Ruby might be able to convince her superiors to allow her to stay in CID. But with the chips stacked against her, she risks returning to her old ways of rubbing people up the wrong way.

Can this young and dynamic detective stick to her guns and follow her instincts? Or will the male-dominated environment and old boys’ network prove to be too much?

BENEATH THE SURFACE is a gripping crime thriller set in St. Albans, Hertfordshire in central England. It is a standalone in a series of three books charting DC Ruby Knight’s career in CID. Look out for THE DEEP END and SCORNED, both available FREE with Kindle Unlimited and in paperback.

DENVER MURPHY is the author of the bestselling trilogy featuring cop-turned-serial killer DSI Jeffrey Brandt beginning with ONE STEP AHEAD.
