6 White Roses by Kelly Marshall is an excellent murder mystery thriller with adult themes. On the first page, the strangled body of six-year-old Emily Chatburn is found by an early morning fisherman. The case is handed to macho Detective Nick Winston and his female partner, Pat Strom. Mystery number one is clearly whodunit, but mystery number two is why did the child’s mother, Elizabeth, wait more than twelve hours after her daughter went missing to call the police; finally, where does the local reverend and overly-attentive ‘friend’ to Elizabeth, Gerald Foster, fit in, and why is Elizabeth’s ex-husband back on the scene? The story covers the detectives’ increasingly disturbing investigation, but also peeks into their steamy private lives to find out what makes each of them tick.
6 White Roses grabs you from the first page, drags you into its compelling mystery, and does not let you go - I absolutely loved it. It is an intriguing, complex mystery, with engaging, sexy (and permanently horny!) lead characters in Winston and his current girlfriend, Tandy, and Strom and her partner, Carina. The story is well plotted and brilliantly executed, the tension is constantly on the rise, and the conclusion is chillingly effective. I didn’t realise straight away that this book was part of a series, but, having enjoyed this so much, I have now also downloaded Kelly Marshall’s The Radio Murders and am looking forward to getting back to Strom and Winston’s world. I sincerely hope there is more to come from this classy writer.
