Chief Inspector Shadow Mystery, Book 4
A Roman Shadow
There’s no such thing as a coincidence in York…
As Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year approach, the ancient city of York is busier than ever and so is Detective Chief Inspector John Shadow. First he has the theft of valuable Roman artifacts from a museum, then a Chinese tourist is reported missing. During his investigations, he encounters jewellers, chocolatiers, museum curators and Roman soldiers—all pieces to a puzzle he must solve. After discovering a series of coincidences, he begins to suspect there may be a link between the two cases.
John Shadow is a man of contradictions. A solitary figure who notices the smallest details about other people, but endeavours to avoid their company. A lover of good food, but whose fridge is almost always empty. Although he would prefer to work alone, he is ably assisted by his eager partner Sergeant Jimmy Chang.
Shadow suspects he knows who the culprit is, but he needs proof. And then there’s the headache of trying to dodge attending an important party, even as the normally easygoing Jimmy behaves out of character…
