A Darkly Shining Star: An Oxford Murder Mystery (Bridget Hart #5) By M.S. Morris
A Darkly Shining Star: Christmas. Ghosts. Murder.
It’s nearly Christmas in Oxford and Detective Inspector Bridget Hart is enjoying a rare day off at Oxford’s Christmas Market. A ghost tour seems like a fun way to round off the day. Until, that is, a brutal murder brings the evening to a tragic close.
Torn between work and family commitments over the festive season, Bridget soon discovers that the ghost of Christmas past is reaching out to the present with fatal consequences.
Not everyone believes in the season of goodwill to all men, and with a real-life, flesh-and-blood killer at large in Oxford, Bridget races to solve the case in time to prevent yet more murders.
Set amongst the dreaming spires of Oxford University, the Bridget Hart series is perfect for fans of Elly Griffiths, JR Ellis, Faith Martin and classic British murder mysteries.
Praise for A Darkly Shining Star:
“This episode is back to being a great whodunit with all sorts of possible murderers and good old fashioned detective work to figure it out. Developing the ongoing characters and their relationships is there, but it doesn’t overwhelm solving the crimes.” -Sondra Stark
“Great fun read. I like these characters set in Oxford, a place well known to me through Morse. I enjoy seeing the characters grow and develop. And of course solving a murder!” -Joe Stulce
