“Life, as someone once said, will always disappoint you in the final analysis.”
In 1973, Stella, a university student, took her own life by jumping from a high-rise building. Or so the police reports claim.
Meanwhile, in the present, crime fiction writer Robert Cross is attempting to organise a fifty-year reunion of his university friends. But as long forgotten memories begin to emerge, Robert is left to piece together the reality of Stella’s death, haunted by his own disreputable past.
A cold case mystery with a difference and a plot that allows the author to explore themes including the passage of time, personal regrets and nostalgia, The Cold Distance makes for a perfect holiday read; and one that is destined for five star reviews.
