Top edge red. 201 pp. Slight fading to top and tail edges, small spot of wear to tail edge of front board. Dust jacket lightly worn and bumped to extremities, a few short tears, creasing to joints. It all started on a snowy February evening when Lori Weston stopped off at the police station on her way to a Valentine party. Her stepdaughters had been frightened by a man who followed them home and lurked outside the house. She had hardly left the station when the call came. Murder is no respecter of Valentine festivities. Aileen Weston had been shot to death in teh hall of her father's house and her sister Ann had narrowly escaped the same fate...can the inspector find the answers to the questions of motive and association in time to prevent the other murder that would complete the killer's design?
