An Imitation of Darkness
London 1998. A young, murdered actress. A predatory American film producer. DC Ruth Hunter and her partner, DC Lucy Henry, find themselves embroiled in the dark and sleazy side of the entertainment business, where it’s more than looks that kill.
Ruth and Lucy are called to the brutal killing of young actress and it seems that her murder might be connected to a cover-up of serious sexual misconduct in London’s film industry. However, when the investigation is thwarted at every turn, they begin to wonder if they will ever solve the case.
When a lucky break turns their attention to a man suspected of stalking the actress, Ruth and Lucy think they now have the prime suspect in their sights. With the clock ticking, will they be able to collect enough evidence to charge the man before he escapes abroad?
An Imitation of Darkness is the third book in the DC Ruth Hunter Murder Case prequel series. If you like chilling police procedurals, true-to-life characters, and psychological twists, then you’ll love Simon McCleave’s page-turning thrill ride.
