Overview

When philanthropist Hugo Fletcher’s dead body is discovered tied to a bed in his London home, Chief Inspector Tom Douglas determines right away that he’s hunting a female killer. Though Fletcher made countless enemies through his work with Eastern European prostitutes, the crime scene reeks of sex and revenge. This murder was personal.

Douglas knows Fletcher’s unhappy wife, Laura, should be his prime suspect. She’s definitely hiding something. Something big. But he isn’t convinced it’s murder. Besides, she’s not the only woman with a motive to kill the manipulative billionaire. So he digs deeper, into a tangled web of secrets and lies, unraveling the sordid life Fletcher lived outside of the media spotlight.

What he uncovers is shocking, forcing the veteran cop to ask himself: With a man like Fletcher, should the guilty be punished? Or should the innocent be protected?

    Highly Recommended

    Only The Innocent is one of the best of the hundreds of British mysteries I’ve read. It is on a par with the best work of P.D. James and Elizabeth George. Like them, this book has elements of the classic Scotland Yard police procedural combined with an ingenious and skillfully handled plot and fully developed portraits of victims, suspects, detectives and other important characters that have real psychological depth. I cannot say much more without getting into spoilers, which would be a crime. Suffice it to say Only The Innocent is a must read for lovers of the genre.

    highly recommend.. not just a who dun it but why.....

    Another review said its not just about who did but why. I couldn't say it better.
    Just when you think u know who' dun it', another layer is revealed. I don't want to give anything away but I rate this 4.5 stars. A must read for those who love a well told story, filled with believable dialogue, a clever way to get the back-story, and action. It would be a great movie, too.

    A gripping novel - not your run of the mill crime.

    This book has an excellent and intriguing start, which had me hooked from the first page. The story begins with a murder - but it is clear that it is a carefully planned murder, and not a crime of passion. But the reader has no idea who the murderer is - only that it is a woman.
    Rachel Abbott carefully reveals a web of intrigue and secrets that draw the reader into the story, and the plot twists and turns until the very last page.
    The underlying concept of this thriller is to reveal not only WHO is the killer, but also HOW the murder was committed and, most important of all, WHY he had to die. When I discovered the reason, it made me shiver - and not many books can do that!
    I would highly recommend this to anybody who enjoys a compelling story, well written and with a complex plot.
