Murder on the Moor, by C.S. Challinor
Murder on the Moor
By C.S. Challinor
According to the author's web site this is the fourth of five mysteries starring "Scottish barrister-sleuth" Rex Graves. This episode finds Graves hosting a house party, of sorts, at his new home in a relatively remote region in the Scottish moor. His old flame turns up, which is decidedly inconvenient since his new flame is already on hand. Things go downhill even further when the old flame is found dead in the nearby loch. Oh, and there's a child killer at work in the area, which makes for an especially grim undercurrent to the proceedings.
Not much else to say about this one except that if you like them short, sweet and fairly straightforward you'll probably like this one. I did.
