‘With A Narrow Blade’ by Faith Martin

Initial enquires by senior investigating officer DI HilaryGreen turns up no reason for the killing of an old lady of seventy seven living in a rented property with no asset’s of any kind.

Audible download. I had never heard of Faith Martin before. She apparently writes a series of Hillary Greene British police procedurals (all having the word "narrow" in the title - guess everyone has to have a gimmick)of which this is an example. Greene is a Detective Inspector investigating the murder of an old woman who had but weeks if not days to live. No point giving away the story, which was well-read and entertaining and contains the usual numerous side plots.
