Kissing the Gunner's Daughter (Chief Inspector Wexford Series #15)by Ruth Rendell
Friday the thirteenth - Sergeant Cleb Martin confiscates a replica gun from his son's school briefcase and later loses his life in a bank robbery. When three people are discovered shot at Trancred House, Chief Inspector Wexford comes to believe there is a connection between the apparently unrelated crimes. But only the seventeen-year-old daughter of one of the victims survives to provide the most confusing of clues.
