“A fine mist cloaked the street as Kay left the police station, heading down the steps and turning left along Palace Avenue.
She clutched the strap of her handbag over her shoulder and hugged the collar of her wool coat at her neck with her other hand, wishing she’d worn a scarf – or at least a coat that left her less exposed to the elements, such as the waxed jacket she’d left hanging on the newel post n the hallway in her haste to leave the house that morning.
Her breath fogged the damp air as she picked up her pace and turned into the short stay car park behind the Carriage Museum.
Despite her having no plans to work late, Sharp’s suggestion of catching up over a meal after everyone else had drifted away made sense, and they’d spent some time mulling over Carys’s decision to move on as well as the case in hand.
She appreciated that despite his elevation through the ranks to DCI, Sharp remained a good listener – and a friend she could rely upon to see problems in a new light that she might not have considered.

TURN TO DUST (Detective Kay Hunter #9) by RACHEL AMPHLETT
With only one clue to the victim’s identity, her inquiries lead her to local charities for war veterans and the homeless – both of which are underfunded and overwhelmed.
Discovering that someone is offering money in return for information about the dead man and anyone connected to him, Kay realises that there is a disturbing and dark side to the victim’s past.
When a key witness disappears from a local temporary shelter, she fears the worst.
Can Kay and her team of detectives find out who is behind the man’s murder before another vulnerable person is targeted?
