So auch den Fall der "verrückten June": Jeden Morgen, pünktlich um 11 Uhr, erscheint June im Polizeirevier, um einen Mord zu melden, den sie beobachtet hat. Als sich jedoch herausstellt, dass der Ermordete noch am Leben ist, glaubt niemand der alten Frau. Truce beschäftigt sich näher mit dem Fall und stößt schon bald auf Ungereimtheiten ...

Another case for Daniel Truce: Patricia Green, a 17-year-old girl, has been missing for 48 hours. The team on site have no leads and have asked the Edinburgh special unit for help. At first, everyone assumes that she has run away. But Truce digs deeper and finds out that Patricia has a secret boyfriend, much older than her. He also hears rumours about parties at Blaine Forest - a place with an unpleasant reputation, where once women accused of witchcraft were hung. Ten years ago, a young girl from the same school hanged herself there, and only one year ago, it was the site of a murder-suicide of a young couple. It is possible that the cases are connected?
After a traumatic military tour in the Middle East, Daniel "Uneasy" Truce returns home with PTSD. Something happened there. Something he never wants to come out.
A few hand shakes later, Truce lands a new job in a ragtag investigations unit. He may be emotionally awkward, but he's got a knack for reading body language. Problem is, his boss hates him. Calls him mentally unsound. She gives Truce the dirty work. That's how he ends up with "the crazy old bat" case.
At 11 a.m. every morning, June drops by her local police station to report a murder she witnessed. Initially the cops took her seriously. They visit the alleged victim's home to find him very much alive. But June won't give up, and her daily appearances become a nuisance. Truce is tasked to investigate. To shut her up. Soon June winds up dead-hit by a car. Was it really an accident? Truce thinks there's more to the case. That maybe someone just doesn't want the truth to come out ...
Only the Dead Know is the first book in the Daniel 'Uneasy' Truce Mystery series.
About the author
Caroline Dunford lives in Scotland in a cottage by the sea with her partner and her two young sons. As all authors are required to have as much life experience as possible she has been, at various times, a drama coach, an archery instructor, a counsellor, a qualified psychotherapist, a charity worker, a journalist, a voice actor, a hypnotherapist, and a playwright. Today she writes mainly novels, the odd (often very odd) short story, theatre plays, the occasional article, teaches and mentors. She can't remember a time when she didn't write or tell stories and seriously doubts that she could remain sane if she stopped doing so.
