THE TV DETECTIVE

The TV Detective finds television reporter Dan Groves newly assigned to the crime beat,and in a state of angst about it.He needs a crash-course in police work;the solution is to shadow detective chief inspector Adam Breen on a high-profile murder inquiry,which doesn’t go down well with some members of the police force.

The victim is a notorious local businessman,Edward Bray,a man with so many enemies that one of the problems the inquiry faces is having a surplus of suspects.Bray is killed at a prearranged meeting,in a lay-by on a dark and storm-lashed night,by a blast through the heart from a shotgun.Adam investigates and uncovers a tantalising question,which seems to be at the heart of the case; Why was the killing planned for a different day,but put off apparently because the weather was sunny? Tensions abound between Dan and the police,and he comes close to being thrown off the case- until the detectives come to realise he might actually be helpful in using the power of television to tempt the murderer into a trap.
