Murrain's Truth: A Trio of DCI Kenny Murrain Short Stories



MURRAIN'S TRUTH offers a trio of short stories which introduce DCI Kenny Murrain, the remarkable hero of the novel LATE CHECKOUT, and his diverse team of colleagues.
Murrain is a man who sees, hears and feels things that others do not. For a detective, it's a gift but also a curse. It allows him a unique insight into crimes and their perpetrators, but all too often tortures him with uncertainty and half-knowledge.
In 'Murrain's Truth' we learn of a key moment in Murrain's back-story and its consequences for Murrain's future. In 'Murrain's Trouble' Murrain is faced with making sense of a teenager's unexpected discovery. And in 'Murrain's Task' Murrain has to deal with the painful fall-out from the death of a young fellow officer.
MURRAIN'S TRUTH also includes the opening chapter of the DCI Murrain novel LATE CHECKOUT.
