Can you ever really bury a secret...?

After uncovering a web of corruption in No Deadly Medicine, Verity has to decide what she wants to do with her life now. Still mourning her husband, she's started to fill her time by chasing errant husbands and wives for money. Susanna Means approaches Verity believing that her partner, too, is being unfaithful...but as Verity looks into his life she realises he may be holding a much darker secret...

Short book and a brief review.  We have a short tale featuring a strong female investigator. 

I'm always bemoaning the fact that I don't read enough female authors without ever doing anything to redress the gender imbalance in my reading. A giveaway via Book Funnel for Even Money gave me the try before you buy experience.

Surveillance, a pub, a casino trip and some careful watching and some deeper digging. 

I liked the tale without being blown away by it. Decent writing, joined up plot, interesting enough main character. There was enough about the story for me to consider reading more from the author in the future, which was the whole point of the exercise. 

No Deadly Medicine is the first book in Martin's Verity Spencer series, if I want to take the plunge.
