A Well Pressed Shroud
Every other Tuesday we feature a publication from leading independent publisher Endeavour Press.
Tell me more!
Hardworking Detective Inspector Montague Pluke has decided to take a much-needed holiday from his job at the Crickledale CID to go in search of the Lost Giants’ Horse Trough of Trippingdale.
Fresh country air and a visit to the prestigious Trippingdale Castle – what more could anyone want?
But his holiday is abruptly disturbed when, while searching the closed-down estate, Pluke stumbles upon the body of the estate’s heir floating face down in shallow waters.
To make matters even stranger, the heir and several other people in the village had recently received a single pressed snowdrop – a well-known sign of death.
Much to Pluke’s displeasure, his quiet countryside holiday is turning into a hair-raising hunt for the murderer. It could be anyone in the village…
Can he find the murderer before another body is found?
Or is this well-pressed shroud a harbinger for a series of killings that Pluke will fail to prevent?
