The sixth book in Ann Granger's bestselling Campbell and Carter series, An Unfinished Murder finds Mitchell and Markby coming out of retirement to crack open a cold case.

Twenty years ago, Josh Browning and his sister Dilys stumbled across a dead body while playing in their Costwold village. The experience was so terrifying that neither of them told a soul. In the modern day, Josh finds the dead woman's charm bracelet among his sister's possessions and lets his trusted friend, retired Superintendent Alan Markby, know.

Markby listens to Josh's confession and alarm bells start to ring. The dates and details tie in with a missing person case that was never solved... He joins forces with Superintendent Ian Carter and Inspector Jess Campbell in an attempt to catch an intelligent killer who almost got away with murder.

An unnecessary book -

I've given the book one more star than it deserves, because I enjoyed the earlier Mitchell and Markby books. This one is very weak, with histrionic details dragged in for no obvious reason. Why did Dilys have an oddly undiagnosed mental affliction? It makes no difference to the plot and one suspects that Grainger put it in to make the story more modern-seeming. Everyone has unrealistic total recall of events that happened years ago, even of smells! What is the character of Malone? It changes with his every appearance. His wife and her cousin are mere ciphers throughout, until the ridiculous violent ending. The extra complication of Stokes and Wallace is improbable in the extreme. And why does anyone put up with Meredith's habit of waltzing into people's homes like the lady of the manor and interrogating them? This is a lazy book, cobbled together out of scraps of sensationalism. Granger should have left well alone.
