The Lord of Cold Compton

(The third book in the Miss Busby investigates series)
A novel by

Lord of Cold Compton

Book 3 In the Miss Busby Series

A woman lies dead, shot and bleeding. Behind her body stands a large old manor house, her house, and now her son's.
She ran the rural estate as a minor fiefdom, all had to subjugate themselves to her will, or they were put out of their homes and ejected from the community.
Lady Compton was hated, nobody mourned her passing, but her murder brought suspicion and dismay to the closely allied village, and it brought the police into their midst.
Everyone has secrets, just as she had. Was the secret the cause of her murder? Had her deceit finally caught up with her? Was the man rumoured to be the culprit really the killer? Not that anyone would name him, not to outsiders, anyway.
Miss Busby is unaware of these undercurrents, until her advice, and help, is sought. It's a terrible dilemma, she is told. No-one knows what to do. Should the police be told? Or should silence prevail?
Whatever she does will put her in contention with Inspector McKay and he has distractions enough.

If you love Agatha Christie, Miss Marple, you'll love this.
