Once again I enjoyed a Cherringham story!! I just finished reading Murder on Thames by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards. I was already aware of the growing relationship between Jack and Sarah, because I mistakenly read the second episode, Mystery at the Manor, first. This time I got to participate in their meeting and what seemed to be unlikely friendship.
Once again I thought I knew who the killer was, and once again I was incorrect! This book begins with the suicide of Sammi, the childhood friend of Sarah. In an attempt to find answers Sarah runs into Jack. After a brief encounter she discovers Jack is a retired NYPD detective. Upon hearing her questioning he decides to help her. They soon have proof Sammi’s death was not a suicide and search for proof of her murder.
Murder on Thames is the first of 12 self-contained episodes. I’ve now finished and enjoyed the first two. I am looking forward to reading the remaining ten. I highly recommend Murder on the Thames and/or Mystery at the Manor to all fans of mystery/thriller books, especially if they are looking for a quality quick read!
