Political corruption at the highest levels, surrounding the Prime Minister and other Cabinet ministers, is uncovered, but who is involved? What has this got to do with the murder? 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? is a gripping work of crime fiction.
