The trip to Tilsey was meant to be a holiday for Detective Inspector Littlejohn.

But the DI soon finds himself caught up in a network of family intrigue involving hate, deception and murder.

In 'Crime in Leper's Hollow', DI Littlejohn must unravel the mysteries of the Crake family.

Starting with the death of Nicholas Crake, the affairs connected to the family seat, Beyle House, make for a gripping tale, one which George Bellairs tells with humour and suspense.

Praise for George Bellairs:

"One of the subtlest and wittiest practitioners of the ...British detective story." - New York Times.

"Head and shoulders above the average of our day." - Madison Capital Times.

George Bellairs was the nom de plume of Harold Blundell (1902-1985), a crime writer and bank manager born in Heywood, near Rochdale, Lancashire, who settled in the Isle of Man on retirement. He wrote more than 50 books, most featuring the detective Inspector Littlejohn. He also wrote four novels under the alternative pseudonym Hilary Landon.
