Everyone has a motive for murder when there's money on the table. But whose story is more plausible?

In seventy-two hours, Detectives Idris Dunne and Josh McDonald close in on an unsolved murder case with the help of mysterious notes.

One of London’s wealthy entrepreneurs was diagnosed with cancer, and became estranged from his wife of thirty years Manisha. Unknown to her, his mistress Chelsea Jackson was slowly sinking her claws into her husband. But that’s not all his mistress was up to. Unexpectedly Tony’s mutilated body is found dumped in a park. Everyone has a motive especially when money is on the table, and his wife Manisha, and their adult children were cut out of his will and replaced by his mistress Chelsea.

Was this an act of kindness from Tony, toward his carer and mistress? Or was there foul play and pressure to change his will by Chelsea? What about his murderer? The case was left unsolved, with lack of evidence.

Mystery notes are sent by an anonymous tip off, Detective Dunne and McDonald re-investigate and piece together the mystery surrounding the entrepreneur’s death, and what led him to change his Last Will in Testament. The question is, from all suspects whose story is more plausible?

About the Author


Sleeping Dogs, Wake

Detective Dunne

Early Monday morning, Detective Idris Dunne ran a hand over his stubble, adjusted his chair, and watched the computer screen in anticipation. After several seconds, he paused the homemade video tape. He glanced at the plain brown envelope it had come in—left in his mail slot overnight.

He grinned, then shook his head.

Snatching up the phone, he hit redial, then waited impatiently for an answer.

“Yeah,” his partner’s voice boomed down the line.

“McDonald, you need to get in here and take a look at this.” Dunne moved his eyes back over to the screen.

“What’s up? Sounds serious.”

“It is. That case we thought was closed—looks like there’s more to it.” Dunne leaned forward in his chair and narrowed his eyes at the screen. He noted the date stamp on the video.

“Which one?”

“The old guy with the stab wounds, missing both eyes, he was found on the common. He left all his money to the young girl. You must remember?”

A beat of silence fell over the line. “Ah, yeah, how could I ever forget.” McDonald chuckled. “The whole family contested the hell out of his will, that’s him, right?”

“That’s the one. Get in here, something’s come up.”

Dunne dropped the phone on the receiver, then sat upright in his chair. He glanced at his Rolex. The dial showed 9.30 a.m., and he had work to do.

“This is some bullshit.” He rubbed his tired, bloodshot eyes. “Already, this day smells and feels like some shit’s heading my way.”

He glanced around his office, crammed with filing cabinets, paperwork, endless coffee mugs, and boxes of energy snack cereal bars.

With gloved hands, he picked up the brown envelope, slid out a piece of paper from inside, then sat back in his chair. He frowned, cursed again, and raised his eyes to the ceiling in disbelief. Glancing back at the note on his desk, he took in the carefully placed letter cuttings from a newspaper. The new evidence brought more questions to mind than it answered.

A quick inspection of the envelope didn’t shine any new information on the case—no
