Trompe L' Oeil by M.E. Robertson-Hoon


Trompe L' Oeil by M.E. Robertson-Hoon

Trompe l' oiel is a design technique employed to trick the eye, but in this case it's murder! When police investigator James Knight encounters mystery woman, Salome Apostolos, waiting inside of his flat, he's wearing no more than a linen bath towel. She offers the wet and barely dressed detective an awkwardly attractive two-hundred pound propositition. Her intentions are unspoken, but her money speaks volumes. Once he is lured to her towering manor, he finds his troubles are just beginning, enter his former fiance, Lady Chamberlain. At first he was reluctant to accept his former flame's assistance, but he'll soon regret the choice, especially when the body count begins to rise. Along with disappearing paintings and a suspicious staff, Detective knight and Lady Chamberlain must decide if the deaths surrounding them are part of a sinister plot, or just another trick of the eye, before another one bites the dust?

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.
