Joey McCarthy is stabbed to death in a pub car park in a random act of violence. Shortly afterwards Charlotte Stone's terminally ill mother dies and then, within weeks, two of her teenage friends commit suicide. With her home life disintegrating and both her father and brother racing towards self-destruction Charlotte realises that her own personal nightmare may not be over yet. When DC Gary Goodhew finds the body of another suicide victim he is forced to recall some deeply buried memories of an earlier death; memories which lead him to Charlotte Stone and the events in her life. From their individual points of view they both begin to wonder whether all these tragedies are somehow linked to a bigger picture. And if they are right, then who will be the next victim? Praise for Cambridge Blue: 'You are pulled in relentlessly as Bruce racks up the tension. Menacing and insidious, this is a great novel'. R. J. Ellory 'An exciting debut from a very promising new talent.'. Paul Johnstone

Another good read from Alison Bruce. She starts her books in the middle of the story dealing with one of her characters. Readers don't realize these pages are a backstory for the events to follow. So stick with the reading even though nothing seems to make sense. All will seem clear at the end of the story. DC Goodhew remains an interesting detective.

I hope Alison Bruce hurries up and writes another in this series. Very good read.
