Blurb from Goodreads

When 84-year-old Ada Fenn was found dead, natural causes were easily assumed. But when the post-mortem revealed that her heart problems had nothing to do with it, a full-blown murder investigation was launched.

Morally indecisive DC Hugo Moreno and the veteran DS Ennis Henriksen try to work as a team to figure out what happened. Will their unorthodox measures break through the lies, misleading evidence, and secrets of...

Kathleen - the loyal administrator... who stands to gain.
Tamara - the hard-working carer... who seeks a better life.
Adrian - charity worker... with a ticket to leave the country.

My Review

Ada Fern is eight four years old when she is found dead at home, age/health issues it is thought to be natural causes UNTIL the post mortem. Now we have a police investigation, three suspects and we hear from Ada through recorded interviews she gave to the charity worker Adrian. All seemingly have no motive or do they? We follow the story via the investigation into the murder and the characters are slowly revealed to have things hidden, don't we all?

A murder mystery but not quite the way conventional books tackle it. I liked hearing from Ada, learning more about this little lady who initially is just elderly, housebound and found dead. The charity worker Aiden who has interviews with Ada gives us more of who she was/is. Tamara and Kathleen, the other suspects along with Aiden the book teases out more information, personality reveals and dare I say motive as the investigation deepens. We also get to know the two cops a bit more personally through their approach in how they handle the case and interact with each other and the suspects.

I found myself getting pulled out of the story as it did jump about a bit with the different characters although they are all linked to Ada and it is all relative. Certainly from a who done it perspective it keeps you on your toes and guessing, I would be surprised if anyone said they had it worked out where the story was going, 3.5/5 from me.
