The investigation into a warehouse fire turns into a murder inquiry when a woman’s body is found in the debris.
Forensics quickly establish foul play is involved. Now fully in charge of her team, DI Tanya Miller investigates, but her efforts are thwarted by a family problem that demands immediate attention. Her niece has gone missing, and her distraught sister is adamant Tanya help find her.
Juggling the two is difficult. Left to their own devices, her team are making little progress on understanding the cause of the warehouse fire. The building owner has proved elusive, and his wife is backing him up. There is some suggestion of shady dealings exporting luxury motors, but nothing substantial and nothing pointing to a motive for murder.
Whilst her team tries to understand what happened to the dead woman, who it turns out worked on the streets and was involved in drugs, Tanya is trying to understand what has happened to her niece – hopefully still alive. The contrast in their backgrounds could not be starker, but is her sister’s daughter the angel that her parents believe her to be?
One thing is certain, Tanya is under pressure to get results, and it will take all of her wits to come out on top. A killer is on the loose, but discovering who and why will take a lot of brainpower and womanpower, and a little bit of help from luck.
BURNING GREED is the second murder mystery to feature DI Tanya Miller. It can be enjoyed entirely on its own as a standalone, but readers will also enjoy the first book, BROKEN ANGEL.
