Jackie Salter is convinced that her brother-in-law Michael Campbell did not murder her sister, Victoria, but the police have different ideas. Angry but undaunted, she hires alcoholic private investigator Trish Lister to search for the truth and gain Michael’s release from prison. Getting the proof is not Trish’s only problem. Nothing is allowed to stand in the way of a gin and tonic – and it doesn’t, despite all of Jackie’s attempts to keep her sober. Trish performs a miracle and obtains key evidence to free Michael, but when D. I. Denton pressures her into being his ‘eyes’ at the marina, she does not appreciate the risks that are approaching. When a second woman is murdered, Denton is so obsessed with his own failures that he is unable to see the effect it is having on his own family – in particular his children – and it is left to his understanding wife to restore his confidence. It is not until Trish meets Sylvia Page that she fully begins to grasp the danger she is in, but is it too late..? Author Roger is inspired by Agatha Christie and Ruth Rendell. A Perfect Likeness will appeal to fans of crime fiction – particularly women, as the protagonists in the novel are all female.
