This is the sixth book in the Inspector Knowles series.
There’s a new retriever in Goat Parva called Banjo and he’s providing good competition for Bingo, the favourite of Mrs Adelaide Hills.
Banjo finds a body in nearby Manton Rempville. The initials of the victim are AB.
Soon a victim with the initials CD is found in the Assisi Lake in the Woods of St Francis and the following day a victim with the initials EF is found axed to death near the same lake.
Moving from pubs to social services to an artist’s cooperative, this murder mystery speeds through the villages around the Woods of St Francis. Is the local football club involved? Is someone at the newspaper covering up a story?
Or is an environmentalist choosing people who’ve committed crimes against nature and dispatching them?
Inspector Knowles, Sergeant Barnes, and the newly promoted DC Smythe are in a race against time to find the killer before another person meets their end.
Can Banjo and Bingo find where a tree has been chopped down to provide a vital clue in the investigation?
The book is available on NetGalley for you to read.
