Summary

Truth is a wild beast.

Approach with patience and zeal, else it eludes you.

Beatrice has developed a delicate nose for lies. It gets the old hound into trouble all the time - with criminals, Scotland Yard politics, and even her friends.

Battling crime by day and her own demons by night, the question remains: justice or the law?

Behind Closed Doors sees Beatrice seconded to Switzerland. Wealthy, powerful men are committing suicide. Or are they? When the same DNA is found at each scene, DI Stubbs suspects someone is dispensing a personal retribution. Beneath the chocolate and charm, Zurich hides many secrets.

In Raw Material, Beatrice is divided. Hunting a sex offender on London Underground while trying to investigate illegal activity on a Welsh beach stretches her to her limits. Her partner and neighbour decide to assist. But amateur detectives and professional criminals make a bad mix.

Time for a sabbatical in Tread Softly. A gourmet trip to the north of Spain is exactly what DI Stubbs needs. Until she meets an old acquaintance who lures her into an investigation. Beatrice is up to her neck in missing persons, murder, corruption, and Rioja.

If you enjoy Kate Atkinson, Patricia Highsmith or Sue Grafton, you'll love Boxset One.

What readers are saying:

"If you've never encountered Beatrice, you have the most almighty thrill coming."

"So refreshing to find a heroine as fabulous and flawed as the rest of us."

"Not since Miss Marple have I warmed so much to a female detective as to Beatrice Stubbs."

First story improbable

in the first story, they have DNA samples, yet do you not know the gender of the person they are seeking. DNA profiles Regular Show the gender of the contributor. Thus, the story is improbable at its heart.

Not my favorite

The first book was very hard to get into. Enjoyed 2 and 3 rd books more. Almost sent it back. Much better once you get into characters
