Dead Smart—the prequel novella in the fast-paced series featuring Inspector John Marco. A dead body is found by the Cardiff City football stadium and John Marco discovers there are some unusual connections. But who wanted him dead? What secrets were being protected?
Nobody can hide from the truth . . .
Eddie Westford is found dead outside the Cardiff City Football ground. His throat has been cut in a cold-blooded attack. Inspector Marco discovers photographs of Westford sitting in various luxury cars and Westford’s connections with the organized hooligan gangs of Cardiff points to a connection with hardened criminals.
Evidence suggesting Westford is a suspect in a drug related inquiry means that Marco faces having to transfer the investigation to another officer. But Marco’s gut instinct believes that Westford’s death may be connected to some powerful people in Cardiff and he resists the attempts from his senior officer to have the murder case allocated to another officer.
Marco embarks on a final last minute attempt to prove his theory with disastrous consequences before he finally identifies Westford’s killer.
