Preface to Murder: An Oxford Murder Mystery (Bridget Hart #6) By M.S. Morris
Preface to Murder: A dangerous book. A hidden secret. A deadly betrayal.
The Oxford Literary Festival is in full swing, but Detective Inspector Bridget Hart isn’t there to learn about books. Instead she’s been given the task of protecting Diane Gilbert, a controversial author who has received a death threat. Diane doesn’t seem to think she needs Bridget’s protection, but when the worst happens, Bridget’s role switches to running a murder enquiry.
The only clues Bridget has to go on relate to Diane’s new book which examines the murky world of international arms deals. Under pressure to identify the killer, Bridget finds herself drawn into the clandestine world of foreign governments and the British Security Service. She’ll need all her wiles and the full cooperation of her team to follow the twisting trail of evidence to its logical conclusion.
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 the Bridget Hart Mystery Series:
“There is a LOT to like in this book. The characters act human and believable, the plot moved along, with lots of suspects and a clever solution, and the Oxford setting is great. Most impressive is the writing, which is REALLY good, beginning with the opening sentence! It was so enjoyable I even read a few sentences out loud to my long-suffering husband.”- Angie Boyter
“Well crafted, superb characters and plot development. I expected nothing when I began this book. By 20 pages in, I felt as if I had found a hidden treasure. I was waiting for some mysterious voice to say, “Close, Sesame.”
What a jewel of a book. Wonderful way to spend time, sharpening my mind, emotionally attaching to well-developed characters. Open, Sesame—there are another 5 books available in this series!”- Mate Beth
