Past Mortem - Ben Elton
With old friends like these, who needs enemies?
It's a question mild-mannered detective Edward Newson is forced to ask himself when, in romantic desperation, he logs on to the Friends Reunited website in search of the girlfriends of his youth. Newson is not the only member of the Class of '88 who has been raking over the ashes of the past. As his old class begins to reassemble in cyberspace, the years slip away and old feuds and passions burn fiercely once more.
Meanwhile, back in the present, Newson's life is no less complicated. He is secretly in love with Natasha, his lovely but very attached sergeant, and failing comprehensively to solve a series of baffling and peculiarly gruesome murders. Then a school reunion is planned, and as history begins to repeat itself the past crashes headlong into the present. Neither will ever be the same again.
In Past Mortem Ben Elton - previous winner of the crime writers' Association Gold Dagger Award for his novel Popcorn - delivers both a heart-stopping thriller and a killer comic romance.
