A winning design of a murder mystery that takes a peek into the darker side of the world of fashion. This is the second in the ‘Mystery for DI Costello’ series leading on from ‘Game, Set and Murder’. DI Angela Costello is likeable, reliable and most definitely someone you would want on your side. There are suspects a plenty as the victim seems to have been clawing her way up both the career and society ladder. The clues are there but some remain at large until some way into the book, the investigation is thorough and it’s interesting to see DI Costello’s bloodhound nose at work. This is the perfect read if you don’t want anything too taxing and enjoy trying to solve a murder from the comfort of your sofa. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

Dead Gorgeous by Elizabeth Flynn

Kirsty Manners is young, beautiful and trying to make it as a model. As the in-house model for the Ivano King fashion house and girlfriend of Ian King, the man behind the label, she believes she is well on her way. But Kirsty is found dead in her flat one Sunday afternoon and D.I.Angela Costello is called to the scene. At first enquiries centre on the local gym where Kirsty, her dangerous ex-boyfriend, Darren Carpenter, and her jealous flatmate, Sandra Hodges, worked out. But things are more complicated. Ian King is considered to have lost his edge. Why then is he so buoyant about his latest collection for London Fashion Week? What about his new girlfriend, Eleanor Chandler, who openly admits to having a reason to wish Kirsty dead? Behind the gleaming smiles and flawless make-up of the glamorous fashion world, Angela's enquiries uncover theft, drug-addiction, prostitution and imprisonment, and suddenly her own life could be in danger.

Reviews

'Flynn creates an appealing detective in Angela Costello. She finds solutions because she cares about people. Let's hope there's more of her to come.' Publishers Weekly
