From the author of Force of Habit: Sister Madeleine Investigates comes a whodunit that never lets up. A fast-paced, enjoyable read that will keep you baffled to the very end.
When two dead bodies are discovered in the old dilapidated gatehouse on the Horsfield estate, not only does it spark fear and panic throughout the otherwise peaceful Chillingley village, but it sets off a chain reaction of suspicion. Who in such a cozy rural backwater, where everyone knows everyone else’s business, could possibly have been driven to murder, and why?
As more bodies pile up, and as detectives flounder in their efforts to stop the crime wave and track down those responsible, a plucky band of local heroes embarks on their own perilous mission to solve the mystery of Horsfield Lodge.
