Murder in Adland(2012)
(The first book in the Detective Inspector Skelgill Investigates series)
A novel by Bruce Beckham
STAND-ALONE MURDER MYSTERY, #1 IN THE SERIES. MEET MAVERICK BRITISH DETECTIVE DI SKELGILL... "MAD, BAD AND JUST A LITTLE BIT COZY."
WHEN A HIGH-FLYING ADMAN is stabbed to death on a company weekend in the English Lake District, local detective Daniel Skelgill finds himself wrenched from his rural Cumbrian comfort zone.
As the investigation unfolds, DI Skelgill is led a merry dance between London and Edinburgh, at every turn confronted by uncooperative suspects – colleagues, wife and lovers of the deceased – each of whom is possessed of motive and opportunity.
Is this a crime of passion, a professional hit, or a cleverly calculated killing borne out of greed and jealousy?
In this traditional-style whodunit, the case can only be solved by carefully piecing together the essential clues – but Skelgill is running out of time. The patience of his superiors wears thin, while the actions of an anonymous agent provocateur serve only to advance the moment when the killer must strike again.
"Great characters. Great atmospheric locale. Great plots. What's not to like?"
