A murderer strikes at a school reunion??but the students are no strangers to death?? in this propulsive, twisty thriller from the internationally bestselling author of the Ruth Galloway Mysteries
Is it possible to forget that you've committed a murder?

When Cassie Fitzgerald was at school in the late 90s, she and her friends killed a fellow student. Almost twenty years later, Cassie is a happily married mother who loves her job??as a police officer. She closely guards the secret she has all but erased from her memory.

One day her husband finally persuades her to go to a school reunion. Cassie catches up with her high-achieving old friends from the Manor Park School??among them two politicians, a rock star, and a famous actress. But then, shockingly, one of them, Garfield Rice, is found dead in the school bathroom, supposedly from a drug overdose. As Garfield was an eminent??and controversial??MP and the investigation is high profile, it's headed by Cassie's new boss, DI Harbinder Kaur, freshly promoted and newly arrived in London. The trouble is, Cassie can't shake the feeling that one of them has killed again.

Is Cassie right, or was Garfield murdered by one of his political cronies? It's in Cassie's interest to skew the investigation so that it looks like it has nothing to do with Manor Park and she seems to be succeeding.

3 and a half stars. If “gentle” murders is your preferred genre, this fits the bill. This is the third in the D I Kaur series - probably could be read as a stand alone but it’s nice to see the lead character develop (Harbinder Kaur - a British/Indian lesbian policewoman). Throw in a little humour as well and you have an easy, satisfying read. ( )

Harbinder Kaur has been promoted! And moved to London! But she is a little unsure of how to be a manager and leader of a completely new team. When an MP is murdered at a class reunion, the incident opens up the case of an assumed suicide 15 years before that might supply the motive. One of Harbinder's team of detectives is also an alumna and present at the reunion. Was she involved in either case?

This is a nice transition to a new series and a new setting. ( )

An MP is found dead at a school reunion. A few days later another MP who was also at the party is found dead. Are the deaths related to the death of a classmate 21 years before?

At first I found it difficult to keep track of who was who among the suspects attending the party. It's not just me, my niece who has also read the book said the same. Once I got over that hurdle, I found it an engaging read though not a fantastic one. ( )

The plotting and writing are strong as is Harbinder Kaur, a new DI. I found some aspects of the case over wrought and not believable. That said, I couldn't put it down. Harbinder makes another appearance, I look forward to it. ( )

Twenty one years after their high school graduation, a group of alumni from Manor Park School, get together with fellow graduates at their first reunion. The six, who had been close friends, include Garfield (Gary) Rice and Henry Steep, two Members of Parliament; Isabelle Istar, a famous actress; Kris Foster, a rock star; Cassie Fitzherbert, a police officer; Anna Vance, who had moved to Italy but returned to England to spend time with her dying mother; and a seventh, Sonoma Davies, Headteacher at Manor Park.
The classmates have a shared secret. Soon after they finished their final exams, the body of one of their classmates, David Moore, was found near the train tracks. Because of traces of heroin on his nose and the presence of insulin in his body, his death was ruled accidental.
But the members of the group know much more. David had raped and attempted to rape some of the girls. Their revenge was to get him to the abandoned train station and threaten him. It obviously went beyond that but was never thoroughly investigated.
The evening of the reunion, the body of one of the members of the group was found near the loo in the school and the police, lead by Detective Inspector Harbinder Kaur, began it’s investigation. Another death soon follows.
At the reunion, memories of David’s death brought them together again as they try to figure out what really happened then and now.
The chapters are related primarily by Harbinder, Cassie, and Anna, each of whom has a different perspective.
There is a lot of repetition, sometimes identical, sometimes not, throughout the book. Old relationships are rekindled, old memories reexamined.
The ending is totally unexpected and somewhat unrealistic. One clue, that should have been spotted earlier is ignored. The switching from past tense to present tense and back again is confusing. The epilogue, a month later, briefly tells what happened to each of the characters since the crimes were resolved. ( )
