A Dirty Death by Rebecca Tope

£1.99

Product description

Set amidst the muck and mayhem of contemporary farming life, 'A Dirty Death' is an entertaining and authentic crime debut, full of foul play, murder, and suspicion.When irascible farmer Guy Beardon meets a very dirty death in his own farmyard, at first it seems like an accident despite the fact that he was widely disliked. Only his daughter suspects foul play. Suspicion becomes certainty when two more deaths occur and both of them are unmistakably murder It had already been a spring laden with mortality. News reports were full of terrorist bombings, earthquakes and floods, and a whole herd of prime beef animals had been wasted on the altar of BSE-phobia. So it was with a strange momentary lack of surprise that Lilah found her father, early that morning, half-submerged face down in the slurry pit.The difficulty lies in discovering who, among Guy 's many enemies, hated him enough to want him dead and who went on killing to conceal the truth. Could it be the vicar, secretly intrigued by the evil that men do? The best friend of Guy 's wife Miranda? The crusty wing commander or the too-good-to-be-true freelance computer whizz? There is certainly no shortage of suspects. Even the ubiquitous Hetty Taplow, the village gossip, appears to know more than she ll admit
