Murder Imperfect: A Libby Sarjeant Mystery


Crime Fiction

The seventh title in the Libby Sarjeant murder mystery series based in the fictional village of Steeple Martin, Kent. New edition includes map of Steeple Martin, cast of characters and a bonus chapter from the next title in the series. When sleuth-come-pantomime director Libby Serjeant learns of threatening letters sent to Cy, a friend of her friend Harry, at first she assumes it's just anti-gay prejudice. With her partner Ben having moved in to her cottage, and son Adam also at home nursing a broken leg, as well as having the panto to cope with, Libby is at first reluctant to get involved. However, when murder follows, Libby and her psychic investigator friend Fran are drawn into another investigation in which the shadows of the past have a dramatic effect on the present, with dangerous consequences for them both.

Product Information

Murder Imperfect is another great murder/mystery in the Libby Sarjeant series - and, imo, the most cleverly plotted yet. Old crimes mirror the new ones and Libby, aided by Fran, has to delve into some pretty murky goings-on - both past and present. Some of the scenes really racked up the tension, the red herrings were brilliant - and I thought I knew who'd done it, and why - but I didn't! The links between what seems at first to be a very modern murder and the horrific events in the past are intricately woven - but they all unravel beautifully and tie up tidily at the end. Oh, and the lovely Harry features a lot in this book - which made me very happy! Highly recommended. -- Christina Jones
