Detective Inspector Mark Jarvis relives his annus horribilis where a young student, Eva O’Connor, is beaten to within an inch of her life, and three health care workers, who seemingly have no connection with each other, mysteriously disappear. Jarvis’ wife is becoming increasingly unwell but unknown to the D.I she hides the real truth behind her illness. Luke Ferguson, a close friend of the Jarvis household, goes missing after Ferguson’s wife and daughter are found dead under suspicious circumstances.

In a harrowing turn of events, the desolate landscape of Upper Stanton reveals its dark secrets. The renovation of an old pub uncovers the unexpected, plunging Jarvis into a maelstrom of sinister discoveries. Amidst the chaos, the once thriving community of Denton Heights looms ominously, its derelict buildings a haven for crime and despair. As Jarvis grapples with these challenges, a shocking incident outside a hospital captivates public attention, exposing the underbelly of a society plagued by violence and apathy.

Jarvis, now retired, is forced to confront his past decisions and their haunting repercussions. His journey through this labyrinth of crime and personal turmoil is a reflection of a world where dreams are often shattered, and the stark reality of urban life leaves its indelible mark. Death of Dreams is a gripping tale of mystery, betrayal, and the quest for justice in a world where the lines between right and wrong are blurred.

Maggie Cartwright was born in Birmingham and now lives in Cambridge with her husband, Martin. Their two sons live nearby. From a very early age she always had her nose in a book, but latterly even more so with crime being a particular favourite genre.

Death of Dreams had been swirling around her head for years, but not feeling terribly confident that her lifelong ambition could be achieved, it was thanks to her husband Martin who inspired her to take it to the finishing post.
