Mercy or Mercenary
by Sheila Parker

Ralph McGuire, aided by his friend Duncan Sinclair and loving wife, Isabel, is in the middle of writing the biography of well-known actor Leo Adare despite suffering from advancing Alzheimer’s.

Ralph is found dead and the post mortem reveals that he died from an overdose of his medication. However, it was impossible for him to get to the bathroom cabinet unaided so who administered this dose and why?

Detective inspector Kershaw is called in to investigate this unexpected death. As the investigation deepens Isabel almost dies from food poisoning, Duncan is twice pushed into oncoming traffic by an unseen attacker and Leo Adare’s nephew, Kieran, makes it very clear that he strongly disapproves of the biography which reveals Leo’s inner turmoil about his sexuality.

With the shocking revelation that Ralph had an illegitimate daughter, Marina, who now wants to contest his will and take her share of his estate, the list of people angry with Ralph grows.

Will Detective Inspector Kershaw be able to untangle the web of lies and deceit and decide if the death was a “Mercy or Mercenary” killing?
