'I could cheerfully murder my boss,' Gemma remarks over coffee.She and her friend Jo joke about fantastic ways of committing the crime.The game is so amusing that on a double date with Jake and Rick they discuss forming a murder society and soon the quartet are calling themselves 'The Headhunters'.But some of Rick's suggestions sound uncomfortably serious.
On the following Sunday morning,Jo is horrified to find a dead body on the beach at Selsey.
It takes the police sometime to identify the victim and by then Gemma and Jo together have found another corpse.This time it's a colleague of Gemma's.Worse still,Gemma's boss is missing. . . .
In this novel,Peter Lovesey explores one of his favourite themes - the innocent caught up in sinister events.'The Headhunters' features Inspector Hen Mallin who has previously appeared in 'The House Sitter' and 'The Circle'.
