The 7th Lloyd and Hill mystery. Lying in the glare of the police arc-light was the body of a 15-year-old schoolgirl, beaten, strangled and possibly raped. For Hill and Lloyd this is the start of a harrowing police enquiry. One that will produce suspects and motives but no witnesses.

A minor celebrity athlete, Colin Cochrane, teaches at the school that the victim herself attended and there is all sorts of gossip doing the rounds about how he could be having an affair with a pupil. The school also has a new teacher - Patrick - who has been flirting with Cochrane's wife - Erica. There are plenty of suspects in this well plotted and well written novel and plenty of twists and turns before the murderer is finally discovered because of the 'shred of evidence' of the title.
I found this a tense and uncomfortable read and was quite shocked at the solution. It is an excellent read and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read well written crime fiction. The book can be read as a standalone story or as part of a series.
