Synopsis

An Uncommon Murder is the first detective novel in Anabel Donald's acclaimed Notting Hill series.

'I'm twenty-eight. I'm a freelance TV researcher. And last November I investigated my first murder . . .'

Alex Tanner is always on the lookout for work - mortgages on flats in Notting Hill don't come cheap after all and she only has herself to rely on. So when TV producer Barty O'Neill mentions a particularly juicy assignment for his latest documentary she jumps at the chance.

Barty sends Alex to investigate the shooting of Lord Sherman, who was a member of London’s high society in the 50s, and whose case remains unresolved.

Alex hopes that a governess of the family, Miss Sarah Potter, will help untangle the truth, or will she lead Alex down another hidden path of the family’s privileged history?

A book to gulp down in one sitting . . . The sparkling writing and immediacy of the characterization plus a gripping mystery raise this well above the average detective novel
