Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At the Man with a Load of Mischief, they found the dead body stuck in a keg of beer. At the Jack and Hammer, another body was stuck out on the beam of the pubs sign, replacing the mechanical man who kept the time. Two pubs. Two murders. One Scotland Yard inspector called in to help. Detective Chief Inspector Richard Jury arrives in Long Piddleton and finds everyone in the postcard village looking outside of town for the killer. Except for one Melrose Plant. A keen observer of human nature, he points Jury in the right direction: into the darkest parts of his neighbors hearts…

Synopsis:

Two pubs in Long Piddleton are the sights of two murders. Scotland Yard's Richard Jury gets some help from Long Piddleton's own Melrose Plant to root out evil in the heart of the village.

Synopsis:

The debut novel by the "New York Times" bestselling author--and the first featuring Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector Richard Jury--is available once again. Two murders in two pubs bring Jury to the village of Long Piddleton. While the villagers look outside for the killer, only one points Jury toward the darkest parts of his neighbors' hearts.
