Aftermath of a Murder by V K McGivney has been honoured
Chill with a Book AWARD
Timid housewife Karen Armstrong is forced to confront the flaws in her marriage after her accountant husband is gunned down in the street by an unknown assailant.
Howard Armstrong was a difficult and controlling man, but as the investigation into his murder gets underway, Karen learns that these were the least of his faults.
Each new revelation hits her like a seismic shock but she tries to overcome her own emotional reactions for the sake of her three children whom she is desperate to keep from learning the terrible truth about their father.
She takes them on a trip to coastal Wales where she experiences a peace and sense of freedom that formerly eluded her.
On her return she sinks into depression and it is during her attempt to recover from this that she finds a clue that leads to the discovery of the identity of Howard’s assailant.
