It's the count down to Christmas and Sal Kilkenny is exhausted even just thinking about the festive season - the tree, presents for the kids, who to invite and what to have for Christmas dinner. So when she is asked to investigate a suicide that a grieving family cannot come to terms with, she turns the case down. Eventually persuaded to help the family trace their mother Miriam s last hours, Sal is ashamed to realize how little the authorities had bothered to investigate and starts to have her own suspicions about the death. Why would a woman so petrified of heights choose to jump from the top of Manchester's parking garage? Meanwhile Sal is also busy on another case involving a sullen teen. With mixed feelings, Sal agrees to tail the difficult teenager and discover where he goes and what he does. The results are puzzling and before long she is led in unexpected directions that will take her closer to danger and heartbreak than ever before... Written with beautiful attention to the nuances of everyday life, Towers of Silence is an emotionally involving journey into the heart of a city hiding dark secrets."

Another great read by Cath Staincliffe. Love the character of Sal Kilkenny and will miss her if there are no more books in the series. In this story Sal is called upon by a family who reject the verdict of suicide when their mother is found dead. Sal is also drawn into another mystery when a concerned mother asks for help to find out what is troubling her teenage son.
