Murder in the Cotswolds

(A book in the Sheriff Chick Charleston series)
A novel by

A Montana sheriff solves a quintessentially English mystery in this lively episode in A. B. Guthrie Jr.'s beloved suspense series

Sheriff Chick Charleston is used to the big sky, wide-open spaces, and no-nonsense attitude of the American West. But when his wife suggests a trip to England to research her family history, he is happy to tag along. The Cotswolds may not be Montana, but the rolling green hills have a majestic beauty all their own. No sooner does the sheriff begin to relax, however, than his vacation is interrupted by murder.

An American tourist is found face down in the Ram's Head Inn with a knife buried deep in his back. Fearing scandal and international headlines, the local constabulary asks Charleston for help in questioning the other Yankees visiting this quaint country village. He may be a fish out of water, but the sheriff's hard-won experience and keen understanding of human nature soon lead him deep into a tangled web of local intrigue.

Filled with the droll humor, meticulous plotting, and unforgettable character studies that distinguish Guthrie's award-winning Western fiction, Murder in the Cotswolds provides delightfully unexpected entertainment from one of America's most acclaimed authors.
