Murder at Shake Holes(2019)
(Book 13 in the Detective Inspector Skelgill Investigates series)
A novel by Bruce Beckham
STAND-ALONE MURDER MYSTERY, #13 IN THE SERIES. MEET MAVERICK BRITISH DETECTIVE DI SKELGILL... "MAD, BAD AND JUST A LITTLE BIT COZY."
MURDER ON THE MIDNIGHT EXPRESS? When the exclusive London-to-Edinburgh sleeper plunges into a snowdrift deep in the Cumbrian fells, DI Skelgill awakes to discover one fellow passenger dead and another missing.
Through a blinding blizzard Skelgill leads a daring evacuation - but even before they reach the sanctuary of an isolated coaching inn, a third traveller suffers a life-threatening mishap.
As suspicion pervades the elite group of apparent strangers, Skelgill has to face an uncomfortable question. Could it be that the dead man - a world authority on money laundering - has been silenced? And is a ruthless conspiracy afoot to gain possession of his incriminating memoirs?
Cut off without communications, surrounded by treacherous moorland, Skelgill must conduct a clandestine investigation. He faces a race against time - and the knowledge that, if he shows his hand, more innocent lives will be at risk.
"Great characters. Great atmospheric locale. Great plots. What's not to like?"
