The Shivering Turn is the 1st in a new series by Sally Spencer focusing on Jennie Redhead, a private eye in mid-1970s Oxford.

Jennie Redhead is a former police woman who was effectively forced out of the force for trying to expose corruption. She now earns her living as a private eye in Oxford and is barely earning her living. Mary Corbet goes to her office one day and employs Jennie to find her missing daughter even though she is convinced that her daughter is already dead. The key to finding her dead or alive lies in uncovering the meaning of the shivering turn.

This is a very good book with lots of twists and turns and a genuine mystery at its core which will keep you thinking. Jennie Redhead is an interesting character and the slightly historical background is interesting.

I received a free e-copy of this book from the publishers on NetGalley.
