Dead Simple by Shirley Wells

Dead Simple (A Dylan Scott Mystery, #8)Dead Simple by Shirley Wells
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

We have all read crime novels featuring a retired or disgraced policeman turned private investigator, well here is another one. Dylan Scott however was a disgraced policeman taking the blame for someone else. A informant / friend from his police days is found dead, murdered in his own flat, as Simple Stevie had no enemies, Dylan was determined to give some payback and find out who killed Stevie. Although slow to start the novel starts to pick up with Dylan compiling his list of suspects, little did he know his investigations would lead him into the world of football and politics in the same case. The story develops further with twists and turns but the clues are there. A very good murder mystery which could easily be turned into a good TV series.
