COLD HANDS, the latest Mike Yeadings police procedural, is a fine who- done-it that from the start with the murder of Oliver moves forward rather quickly. However, though entertaining and well written, the secondary cast, key to keeping an ongoing series fresh, never grips the audience as they lack depth. Her police procedural series featuring Superintendent Mike Yeadings had an interesting mix of solid police work and typically British quirky humor. This slight book is no exception.

"A treat for fans...better than most" KIKUS REVIEWS "Carefully constructed...smoothly written" BOOKLIST A dead body is found on a railway line - a straightforward suicide, or something more sinister? When the dead man is identified as a customs officer investigating counterfeit currency, it seems like more than just a coincidence. Superintendent Mike Yeadings is suspicious, so he sends his undercover team, including DI Mott and DS Zyczinski, to Fraylings Court and the heart of the operation

The suicide victim turns out to be Customs Agent Oliver Webb, who apparently decided to allow a train to kill him. However, the police think that thanks to a sharp doctor's observation, someone deliberately spread Oliver across the tracks to cover up a homicide by making it seem more like a suicide. Thames Valley Detective Superintendent Mike Yeadings learns that Oliver was working on a massive amount of counterfeit Sterlings bills coming in from Amsterdam when he was killed. The police also find out that Fraylings Court, home to the ailing Sir James Siddons and his financially strapped family, is the next major drop-off point.

Since the Siddons run a schooling-hotel for paying guests, Detective Sergeant Rosemary Zycyznski enrolls as a "student" to obtain insider information. Mike wonders if a family ember or two, a guest or two or three, etc., or both are involved in counterfeiting and homicide? Though he knows the importance of a mole, he worries about the safety of his undercover officer when the truth surfaces.

COLD HANDS, the latest Mike Yeadings police procedural, is a fine who- done-it that from the start with the murder of Oliver moves forward rather quickly. However, though entertaining and well written, the secondary cast, key to keeping an ongoing series fresh, never grips the audience as they lack depth. Mike remains a strong lead figure and Z is a wonderful "poker" player, however Clare Curzon's newest entry is very good, just not great, like some of her previous yields.

Late Clare Curzon. a highly prolific mystery writer always wrote very readable, competent books. Her police procedural series featuring Superintendent Mike Yeadings had an interesting mix of solid police work and typically British quirky humor. This slight book is no exception. Quick and interesting read from a marvelous British crime writer.
