One Albanian male, no family, no partner, no job: burnt to death – from the inside.
DI Eddy Souness, is no stranger to death, but this was extraordinary – this was unnatural.
One last case, one they thought would keep him quiet in the remaining few weeks before his retirement. Investigate, do the paperwork and file it as unexplained. But turns out this victim wasn’t the first, nor was he to be the last.
His investigation hits a wall of silence; nobody wants to talk, especially not to Eddy. No one that is, except the enigmatic Juliana: beautiful, widowed and alone. How could he not fall for her? She has a secret though – a dark secret, a secret that would destroy Eddy if he knew. But he has a secret too, one that has decided his future.
As the investigation deepens and the death toll rises, Eddy finds the hunter has become the hunted, leading to a final but deadly confrontation, one where a devastating revelation seals Eddy’s fate.
"The characters are well drawn out...... also the descriptions of the decor are carefully told. The person/persons who did it at the end was a complete surprise for me. I did not see that coming. Compliments to the author."
"A carefully crafted suspense mystery thriller from beginning to end. 'The Rainbow Dead' by David John will prove to be an engaging page-turner of a read by a true master of the genre and a "must" for all dedicated mystery buffs!"
