Six months after the body of Josh Reynolds, a London nightclub owner, was found and determined by police and coroner to be a suicide, DCS James Langton tasks DCI Anna Langton to review the case. Reynolds died from a single gunshot wound to the head, the gun held in his right hand. But details are emerging that suggest someone else may have fired the gun... As soon as she wraps up the case, Langton tells Anna, she can join him at the FBI Academy in Virginia for training. Meanwhile, a Senior FBI Agent, Jessie Dewar, crime scene expert, is seconded to Anna's team as part of her research and immediately the competence of the original investigation team is questioned...

      I AM ONLY HALF WAY THROUGH THE BOOK AND I AM THOROUGHLY ENJOYING THE SUSPENSE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHO HAS COMMITTED THE MURDER AS YET SO THAT IS GOING TO BE A SURPRISE.

          Comments about Wrongful Death:

          I enjoyed this Police procedural - the charachters were all unusual in their persistence and perceptions. The personal histories, affections and resentments make a great mix in the eventual outcomes. It all comes together very neatly.
