Murder in the Dark is the twelfth book in the Libby Sarjeant series of British murder mysteries featuring a retired actress who becomes a female sleuth in the picturesque village of Steeple Martin.
An unidentified woman’s body is found in a remote garden in Kent. With the owners not in residence, the only people with legitimate access are the caretaker, Johnny, and landscape gardeners Adam Sarjeant and his employer, Mog.
Afraid of her son falling under suspicion, Libby Sarjeant, with her friend Fran, are determined to find the murderer, with or without the assistance of the police in the person of Chief Detective Inspector Ian Connell.
