Stone Cold Red Hot

by Cath Staincliffe

Part of the Sal Kilkenny Series

Stone Cold Red Hot Synopsis

Can Sal break the conspiracy of silence that surrounds her latest case? Sal Kilkenny is asked to discover the whereabouts of Jennifer Pickering, disinherited twenty years ago. But it seems that now Jennifer does not want to be found. And as she spends her days tracing Jennifer, Sal's nights are shattered by a dangerous stint with the Neighbour Nuisance Unit on one of Manchester's toughest housing estates. In this highly charged atmosphere it's not surprising when tempers flare... and as properties start to burn, Sal's two cases spiral out of control and events, past and present, collide with deadly intensity. Praise for Cath Staincliffe: 'Gritty, intelligent, humane and involving' Big Issue 'Deftly organised, with several surprising twists.' Evening Standard 'An engrossing read.' Sunday Telegraph 'Real people, real problems... Staincliffe writes brilliantly and compassionately about things that matter. Seriously good.' Literary Review 'Modest, compassionate... a solid ingenious plotter with a sharp eye for domestic detail' Literary Review 'Complex and satisfying' The Sunday Times 'about as good as the British private eye novel gets' Time Out
