The Snakes and Ladders Murders

(Book 26 in the D.I. Angel Mystery series)
A novel by

Death strikes again...

The town of Bromersley is the scene of a brutal murder once again - and Detective Inspector Michael Angel is called on to catch the killer.

But what if that killer is not human?

Eveline Pierce has died in her home - apparently from a deadly snake bite.

There are no signs of forced entry and no usable fingerprints.

The reptile is nowhere to be found.

Most concerning of all is the next-door neighbour's admission that she heard an eerie sound during the night.

A sound coming from the dead woman's house. A sound like that of a music box...

DI Angel blazes into action in a desperate attempt to catch the killer, and when a second victim is discovered, a pattern begins to emerge.

It soon becomes clear that the targets were all teachers at the local school. And the sound of the music box is heard yet again at the scene of the crime...

It isn't long before DI Angel is bringing his suspects' secrets and lies into the light - from a family feud to an illicit affair - not to mention unravelling the truth behind other suspicious circumstances in the town.

Can DI Angel identify the culprit?

Or will his murderous adversary triumph in this vicious contest of snakes and ladders?

The Snakes and Ladders Murders has everything you could want from a murder mystery novel - dark secrets, a ruthless killer and suspicion at every turn.
