Description

A trip to the Lake District proves to be anything but idyllic when Dorothy and Alan investigate a mysterious death.

Dorothy Martin and her husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, jump at the chance to holiday in the beautiful Lake District when Alan's old friend, Christopher Prideaux, invites them to visit him in Grasmere.

A party at Christopher's cottage is the perfect way to meet the locals, but one stands out - accountant Donald Atkinson, an egoist hoping to become a politician, clearly isn't popular among his fellow villagers. When he's found mysteriously dead during the Fell Race, could his demise be due to a sudden, fatal medical emergency, or was it murder? Dorothy and Alan find themselves catapulted into a disturbing case that will lead them back in time, and to a terrible, scandalous secret that someone is determined to keep hidden.

Beguiling Backdrop..
The hugely anticipated twenty sixth outing in the Dorothy Martin series of mysteries finds Dorothy and Alan taking a holiday in the Lake District. Anyone who has enjoyed this series already will know that whenever this pair attempt to enjoy a holiday things usually turn deadly. This occasion is no different when a rather odious would-be politician drops dead during a Fell race. As Dorothy and Alan dig deep into the mystery and join forces with local police, scandal and secrets may well emerge. An enjoyable entry to this long running series with a deftly drawn cast of eclectic characters, a beguiling backdrop, a solid mystery at its very heart and a pair of likeable protagonists - although it must be said that Dorothy herself becomes ever more sanctimonious with every new mystery!
