ERSKINE POWELL OF SCOTLAND YARD INVESTIGATES MURDER ON THE MOORS.
On a remote, fog-enshrouded estate in the North York Moors, a murderer lays a cunning trap. The prey, it seems, is Dickie Dinsdale, the greedy landowner who bulldozes people's lives like so many old barns.
Easily a dozen residents of Blackamoor would derive pleasure from Dinsdale's slow, painful death. But, Detective-Chief Superintendent Erskine Powell asks himself, which of them is bold enough to do the deed?
Is it Dinsdale's old gamekeeper, dismissed without warning? The environmentalist he assaulted and humiliated? The sexy stepsister he spied upon? Suspects are as thick as grouse in summer, and bringing down a killer on the wing is very tricky--even for a pro like Erskine Powell. . . .
I always enjoy Graham Thomas stories. Intriging plots, interesting characters and good writing. I am never disappointed by this author.Published on April 11, 2013 by Jeanne
Couldn't find this first in the series anywhere else. It was OK. Bit of a different take on the persona of the detective.Published on April 22, 2012 by J. M. Greenwood
Not Agatha Christie or Elizabeth George but a pleasant short read. Perfect for a long plane ride or a few days on the beach.Published on April 1, 2008 by Weaver
