Field of Death

Author(s): Graham Brack

Era(s): 2000s

Josef Slonský is preparing to take up his promotion as Captain when a spanner is thrown in the works.

He has to pass a medical, and a lifetime’s supply of beer and sausage is not helping his chances of passing.

Faced with a strict diet and exercise regime, Slonský is even less amenable than usual.

But his attention is caught when reports come in of a Second World War bomb detonating in a nearby field.

It seems four metal detectorists were killed in the blast upon discovering it.

But the pathologist Slonský works with suspects foul play…

Could this be a murder investigation? Was the bomb planted?
