Make Do and Murder . . .
Porthferris near Looe in Cornwall is a little fishing village with a lot of secrets.
On a stormy night in March, 1941, Maisie Rose Hawkins leaves her husband, Stan, drunk as usual, out in the rain – then he disappears. DS Bob Robbins, called back into the Police from retirement, and young PC Laurie Oliver, straight out of school, go to investigate. Stan’s small fishing boat has gone, the rope sawn through.
As Bob investigates, he discovers something far more serious and dangerous than a bit of local smuggling.
Based on real events during WW2, this is the first book in the award-winning Bob Robbins Home Front Mystery series.
