Cold Case by M.A. Comley
DI Sally Parker has been handed a ten-year-old cold case. However, the victim, Aisha Thomas, isn't just a member of the public--she's a serving police officer's wife. During the original investigation, the suspects disappeared before they could be questioned. Now fresh evidence has been uncovered, proving the two suspects to be innocent. Sally has to start over at the beginning. She uncovers a few surprises that were either overlooked. . . or purposefully ignored by the original investigator. When the case threatens Sally's fledgling romantic relationship with pathologist Simon Bracknall, she begins to suspect someone is determined to hinder her chance at happiness--as well as solving Aisha's murder. Is Sally getting close to revealing the killer or has she stumbled across something even more sinister?

I haven't read the previous two in the series, but I am no stranger to the work of MA Comley. The book read well as a standalone. I felt it was a real treat, like a cosy night in watching a favourite detective show. For that reason I found it very hard to put the book down. DI Sally Parker and her team have a month to solve a 10 year old murder cold case. The odds were stacked against her solving this one, but it was a very cleverly crafted plot that kept me guessing right up until the unexpected ending.
