|This mystery takes place in the fictional town of Bradfield in northern England. A star soccer (football) player for the local team dies suddenly, and it wasn't an extreme case of the flu, it was poison. The police have a hard time finding motive & opportunity, so they consult profiler & psychologist Dr. Tony Hill to work with DCI Carol Jordan on the case. There are more poisonings, and a bombing at the soccer (football) stadium which may, or may not be related. An intriguing, complex plot & interesting characters. I want to read more in the series.
