Why Was She Killed?
by Keith Wainman

“Do we have a name for the girl?” asked Oscar.
“Yes, a girl who was reported missing last night – Ashadieeyah Khan, age twenty.”
“Ashadieeyah means princess,” said Manjitt, “it's a Muslim name, but why are we here? It doesn't seem to be one of our cases.”

The murder of a young girl on Wimbledon Common leads to police interference, political skulduggery and terrorist plots. A girl’s body is found – is she the girl her family thought she was? Her parents hear stories about her that they cannot believe, but they have no-one to turn to.

The case is handed to the serious crime and murder squad, led by Chief Superintendent Charlie Smith, a policeman with few friends in high places. His lifestyle has led to jealousy and stories of corruption amongst the top brass at Scotland Yard. The team Charlie leads is made up of officers who could not find a home in other police departments – due to their attitude and background – but are fiercely loyal to their boss. In turn, they know he will support them when things get tough.

As the case continues, it becomes apparent that someone wants to stop them discovering the truth – but why? The team encounter interference from and conflict with other police departments, who will seemingly stop at nothing to prevent them from finding out the truth. Political corruption at the highest levels, surrounding the Prime Minister and other Cabinet ministers, is uncovered – but who is involved? What has this got to do with the murder? And what is the truth? Charlie Smith won’t let anything stand in his way to find the truth – and the murderer...

Why Was She Killed? is a gripping work of crime fiction.

Took this book on holiday with me and couldn't put it down. Enjoyed the personalities of the main characters and would like to see them in a second book. Would definitely pick up work of this author again

by Robin

It's hard to believe that this is the first book from this writer. The storyline and characters are written with such depth that it rates highly with the well known writers of crime/murder in this time. I found that I was so drawn into the story that I had difficulties putting it down. I await in anticipation for another book soon, these investigating characters are too good for just one book. A bright future ahead,I believe, for this author.

This is not the usual genre of book that I read but I really couldn't put it down. I was really drawn into the story and it kept me interested until the very end.
