Deaths Bright Angel


Author: Janet Neel
When an elderly Yorkshire businessman is brutally killed in a quiet London side-street, the murder investigation throws together Detective Inspector John McLeish and high-flying Department of Trade and Industry civil servant Francesca Wilson. Death’s Bright Angel would be one of the first crime novels to set the traditional English detective story against an authentic background of business and government intervention and deservedly won the Crime Writers’ Association’s John Creasey Award for best debut of 1988. The McLeish/Wilson relationship was to flourish romantically over a series of seven books, winning many loyal fans in the UK and the USA.
