O Gentle Death

UK Publisher: Constable & Robinson

When schoolgirl Catriona Roberts commits suicide, the post-mortem reveals that she was pregnant. Rumours begin to circulate that she was murdered and the finger of suspicion falls on the gifted and arrogant Giles Quentin, a fellow pupil at the fashionably liberal boarding school, Faraday Trust. Did Giles, who may be the father of Catriona’s unborn child, kill her to save his burgeoning singing career? Or did his father, the famous conductor, murder the girl to protect his son? Aided by his resourceful wife Francesca Wilson, DCS John McLeish investigates.

This is the seventh novel in her Wilson and McLeish series.
