English | 2017 | Mystery | EPUB | 268 KB
When John Cluster, a local farmer, is found with a poultry-knife protruding from his back, the villagers of Cheswick have something new to gossip about. All the evidence points to Miss Emily Mytton, whose house is the unfortunate scene of the crime. But as the last member of the village’s oldest family, and with a firm alibi, surely she must be innocent? And Cluster’s widespread unpopularity means that a long and complicated murder investigation must begin, with a number of new suspects.
Detective-Sergeant Norris-Kerr may look like he is not up to the job, but what he exposes goes far deeper than any local gossip. And when William Bright is attacked, Norris-Kerr suspects that one victim was not enough for the killer. Can he uncover the killer’s motive before they strike again? The answer will lie in one of the village’s best hidden secrets…
