Someone is killing beautiful young women and taking extraordinary risks to carefully pose their painted bodies in public places. The first is bronze, then silver — who will be gold?
Detective Sergeant Stevie Hooper, young, hard-edged and newly seconded to the Serious Crime Squad, finds herself haunted by increasingly disturbing flashbacks as the bizarre case unfolds. And, as she closes in on the killer, the carefully drawn line between her professional and personal life becomes increasingly blurred, till she doesn’t know who can be trusted.
‘ … a delightful pot pourri of police corruption, injustice, tangled emotions, treachery and misunderstanding on top of the literary murders.’ — Mary Martin Bookshop Reviews
‘An Easeful Death contains more red herrings than the Atlantic Ocean, but Young, … handles it all with some skill. In fact this is a couple of notches above a lot of crime dross the bigger publishers invest in. Hopefully Young will find a ready audience. She deserves it.’

was born in Hanover, Germany, in 1960 and went to boarding school in the United Kingdom while her parents were posted around the world with the British Army. She took up writing after moving to rural Western Australia in 1990. Having a brother-in-law who is a retired police superintendent, it was almost inevitable she would turn to crime writing. Her first novel, A Certain Malice, was published in Britain by Creme de la Crime in 2005.
