Every family has its share of problems. For the Trenchards it was money, or rather the lack of it. That, and Rose. Getting rid of Rose would solve a lot of problems, and not just the Trenchard's. It's Christmas time in Rochfield, DCI Sutherland and DS Simpson are looking forward to a quiet holiday period. Sutherland is hoping to spend some quality time with his family. Simpson is on the look out for a new woman in his life. The death of Rose upsets their plans, but it does introduce Simpson to a new woman, so things aren't all bad. A white Christmas and a suspicious death! This novel of family life and police procedures has been described as a 'Televisual Treat' - television for the imagination, and a book that will keep you guessing right to the end.
