A bank in a country town is robbed in the dead of night, and a couple left mercily locked inside the vault. Meanwhile, in a small village, a car explodes into smithereens. The two passengers are violently killed, as well as an innocent passer-by. In another village, a woman is kidnapped from her beautiful house, and subsequently found splayed on a bed in a tiny attic, strangled to death. With three cases on their hands, each the more puzzling than the next, the police begin to realise that these deaths are intrinsically linked. But their investigations are hampered by the kidnapped woman’s husband. He spins a sprawling web of lies to avoid incriminating himself elsewhere. The final face-off and bitter conflict between two groups of criminals leads to a grim and grisly denouement in an isolated riverside cottage. 'Death on a Sunday Morning' is a fast-paced crime thriller that promises to grip readers from the first page to the last.
