The Wrong Man PDF, ePub eBook When Diana Woods is found stabbed to death in her kitchen, her family, friends and neighbours are quick to tell investigating officers, DS Dave Slater and DS Norman Norman, what a wonderful person she was, and the finger of suspicion is quickly pointed in the direction of her estranged husband Ian. According to them, Ian Woods seemed nice enough on the outside, but behind When Diana Woods is found stabbed to death in her kitchen, her family, friends and neighbours are quick to tell investigating officers, DS Dave Slater and DS Norman Norman, what a wonderful person she was, and the finger of suspicion is quickly pointed in the direction of her estranged husband Ian. According to them, Ian Woods seemed nice enough on the outside, but behind closed doors he was a bully who regularly abused his wife. When questioned, Woods is vague about his whereabouts on the afternoon of the murder, and is unable to explain why it took him almost eight hours to complete a four hour journey home. It seems clear to Norman, that Ian Woods not only had a motive to kill his wife, he also had the opportunity. Their boss, DCI Bob Murray, is in no doubt and orders them to make an arrest. But Slater’s not so sure they’re being told the whole story about Ian Woods, or Diana, and it’s not long before he learns that Ian Woods isn’t quite the monster her friends are so keen to suggest he is, and Diana certainly isn’t the angel they’ve been told about. Further enquiries suggest there’s another likely suspect in Diana’s boss Bruce Rossiter, and then, when someone comes forward to give Ian Woods an alibi for the time he was supposedly murdering Diana, it seems pretty clear they’ve been focused on the wrong man. Mounting evidence against Bruce Rossiter suggests they’re now on the right track, but they begin to wonder if some of the evidence they are finding isn’t just a little too convenient. Have they got the wrong man again? Is it possible Diana was murdered so Rossiter could be framed? The problem is, he’s not the most popular guy in town, and there are a number of likely candidates who would love to see him out of the way. Can Slater and Norman figure out who it is?

    4th book in the DS Slater & Norman series. I have read all 4 now and enjoyed them all. Slater and Norman are called to attend a murder of a woman at a house outside of Tinton. Initially it would seem “the husband” did it. However “he’s a nice guy” and it does not seem all the evidence stacks up. Her friends claim butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth and he must have done. His friends and work colleagues say she was at it with anything in trousers and he is innocent. Slater, Norman and Jane Joll 4th book in the DS Slater & Norman series.

The ending will surprise you but you will enjoy it!! Looking forward to some more Dave Slater adventures

    I really like the series with Dave Slater. This one had a surprising twist at the end. DS Slater and DS Norman were trying to solve a brutal murder and at first they thought they had the right man but new witnesses threw them a curve and they found themselves with three viable suspects! Read to find out how it ends!!!

    Review Once again the author has written a really good cozy mystery. The dynamics between the two main characters really make the book's stand out. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys reading a really good cozy mystery.

    When Diana Woods is found dead her ex-husband becomes the first suspect. DS Slater is unsure, unlike his partner DS Norman and boss DCI Murray so Slater continues to investigate. Another enjoyable story in this series.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series! The plots are intricate, the repartee between Slater and Norman refreshing, and the storylines keep readers intrigued! I just wish these books were more readily available. (The second one, Just a Coincidence, is my favorite of the four!)

    Sorry felt betrayed at the end of this one. Not by the mystery itself (a bit predictable--has been done, but entertaining enough) but about the twist regarding one of the r'glars. Almost too cynical of the author.

    Brilliant. The twists and turns stopped me from putting this book down, another winner from Mr. Ford. Slater,Norman and Jolly make a great team

    Not as much of the inane banter in this one but the convoluted mystery will have you guessing to the end. I enjoyed it but didn’t feel it was quite as good as the previous ones.

    Da ve slater mystery novels I have read several of the novels in this series BT Dave Slater and everyone of them were quite good reading. There are a variety of unusual circumstances and people involved but the stories move along at a very quick pace.

    P.

    There's a bit of the keystone cops about this book, and the rules and regs these cops follow seem a tad wonky. This series claims to be 'not quite police procedural, and not quite cozy mystery.' You can't but agree.

    Violation of the Rules of the Genre This is a comment for the editor, since it is a spoiler for a reader. I enjoy these books because of the appealing characters and good puzzles. However, this book in the end cheats. At the beginning, the victim observes that she is wearing clothes purchased from the person who becomes the murderer and observes that she will soon have him all to herself. Neither of these things could be true of the murderer. An unreliable narrator as a character is marginally ac Violation of the Rules of the Genre This is a comment for the editor, since it is a spoiler for a reader.

The editor should have fixed this.

    Light hearted crime fiction Slater & Norman have a light hearted humorous relationship whilst trying to solve crime. A good easy read that is difficult to put down. Another novel in such a brilliant series of stories.

    Absolutely brilliant If you can figure out exactly who killed Diana and how it was done before the last chapter, my hat is off to you! This is turning out to be one of the best series I've read in a long time. It's worth your time to check it out. I'm off to the next book!

    Spot on Love a mystery where you don't guess the villain until you're close to the end. This one twists and turns in till you're dizzy. What I really love about this author is his dialog. It is so hard to make characters sound natural but they are great at it.

    3.5 stars. Not bad but I don't think the characters are interesting enough for a higher rating.

    I know this book had its intense moments ad plot twists, but I found it to be rather boring.
