Die of Shame (Paperback)
From a master of the genre, Die of Shame is a chilling story of addiction, subterfuge, and murder. Every Monday evening, six people gather in a smart North London house to talk about shame. A respected doctor, a well-heeled housewife, a young gay man, a supermarket cashier--these individuals could not be more different. All they have in common is a history of pain and addiction. But when one member of the group is murdered, it quickly becomes apparent that someone else in the circle is responsible. The investigation is hampered by the strict confidentiality that binds these people and their therapist together, making things difficult for Detective Inspector Nicola Tanner. If she is to find the killer in this case, she will need to use more inventive methods. The question is: What could be shameful enough to cost someone their life? And how do you find the truth when secrets, lies, and denial are second nature to all of your suspects?
