A Knife for Harry Dodd

(A book in the Thomas Littlejohn series)
A novel by

Harry Dodd is stabbed in the back on his way home from the pub.

But instead of calling for the police, he summoned his mistress and her mother to fetch him.

When Inspector Littlejohn and his colleague, Cromwell, are called in to investigate they find themselves with a mystery on their hands - one with layers of intrigue that takes them into the heart of a family riven with conflicts.

And when the victim's lawyer and father both meet similarly suspicious ends, it becomes clear that someone is desperate to cover their tracks, and conceal their web of lies.

From a local asylum to a gentleman's club, and with false alibis given at every turn, the detectives find themselves becoming more confused at every turn...

Who stabbed Harry Dodd?

And who was responsible for the mysterious murders that followed his death?
