Murder In Broadway

(The tenth book in the Inspector Vignoles Mystery series)
A novel by

MURDER IN BROADWAY THEY'RE OFF! DI Charles Vignoles and his British Railways Detective team are pitched in among the runners and riders for the 1955 Cheltenham Gold Cup, sprung from the starting gates all because a little girl loses a worthless jewel down the back of a railway carriage seat. But others think this little sparkler is worth killing for . . . Just when you thought it was safe to go into Cheltenham Racecourse's Royal Enclosure to study equestrian form with Her Majesty, a deadly duo stroll in with orders to relieve a dodgy toff of this little rock, their thirst for forensic cruelty unabated from the previous Vignoles investigation, Cold Steel Rail. Faster than 'The Cheltenham Flyer' express, the action races back and forth across the country, as Vignoles grapples with not only a rising body count stretching from the Cotswolds to London's East End, but the naked ambition of a brash new deputy forced upon him. The mid-1950s are brought deftly to life as Stephen Done marshals his cast of colourful cast of characters, when steam still powered the nation's travel. In spite of those chill, ill winds scything across the bleak Cotswold countryside, in racing terms this novel is a Gold Cup winner!
