First edition. Signed by the author. Near fine in pictorial wrappers. Vicky Hawks dies in her sleep in a houseboat on the Thames...the apparent cause of death, carbon monoxide poisoning due to improper ventilation of the narrowboat’s heating system. It all seems straightforward, but DI Kathy Kolla isn't convinced. Meanwhile DCI Brock is wrestling with harsh budget cuts and a new Commander who is determined to make fundamental changes to the system—including limiting resources devoted to investigations. Trade-size paperback.
