Past MischiefBook - 1996 | 1st U.S. ed.
On Friday evening, Annette Briers is flattered to share a cab to Marylebone Station with her elegant and standoffish boss, Miranda Gregory. At the station, as they sit over coffee waiting for their train, Miranda becomes inexplicably shaken and insists that she return to the office. On Monday morning, Annette returns to work to find a very dead stranger seated at her boss's desk. As Detective-Superintendent Mike Yeadings and his team from the Thames Valley Police Force begin to investigate, it becomes clear that Miranda never reached her office on Friday. An unconscious hit-and-run victim in a suburban hospital is soon identified as the missing woman. The London force is brought in to work with Yeadings and his team as they search for the elusive link between the murder and the traffic accident. While Miranda, an orphan with no apparent leads to her past, hovers near death, a shadowy pattern of past evil and frustrated love emerges, confounding investigators. Was Miranda a martyr or a murderess?
