The murder of a young girl on Wimbledon Common leads to police interference, political skulduggery and terrorist plots. Aâ girl's body is found; is she the girl her family thought she was? Her parents hear stories about her that they cannot believe, but they have no-one to turn to. The case is handed to the serious crime and murder squad, led by Chief Superintendent Charlie Smith, a policeman with few friends in high places.â His lifestyle has led to jealousy and stories of corruption amongst the top brass at Scotland Yard. The team Charlie leads is made up of officers who could not find a home in other police departments, due to their attitude and background, but are fiercely loyal to their boss. In turn, they know he will support them when things get tough. As the case continues, it becomes apparent that someone wants to stop them discovering the truth, but why?â The team encounter interference from and conflict with other police departments, who will seemingly stop at nothing to prevent them from finding out the truth. Political corruption at the highest levels, surrounding theâ Prime Minister and otherâ Cabinet ministers, is uncovered, but who is involved?â What has this got to do with the murder?â And what is the truth? Charlie Smith won't let anything stand in his way to find the truth, and the murderer... Why Was She Killed?â is a gripping work of crime fiction.
