Murder in a Welsh Town

Murder in a Welsh Town

Author(s): Pippa McCathie

Location(s): South Wales

Genre(s): Crime

Era(s): Present day

Plans for a town pantomime are thrown in the air after one of the actors is murdered.

The victim is local gossip, nosy parker and aspiring manipulator, Ivor Gladwin. Reviled by many and ignored by more, the list of people who could have wanted rid of him seems to grow by the minute.

Despite having overstepped the mark in past cases, because of her familiarity with the individuals involved, ex police officer Fabia Havard is actually tasked by her husband, and serving DCI, to look into the matter on the side.

Unfortunately, she stumbles upon an ongoing undercover inquiry, and the killer looks like they might creep back into the woodwork.

With amateur dramatics suspended and a serious murder case on their hands, Havard and Lambert will need to put their minds together to crack the case.

MURDER IN A WELSH TOWN is a richly-woven domestic murder mystery full of interesting characters and shady secrets. It can be enjoyed entirely on its own or as part of the series. The full list is as follows:

1. MURDER IN THE VALLEYS
2. MURDER AT THE OLD ABBEY
3. MURDER BY THE RIVER USK
4. MURDER IN A WELSH TOWN

All of these books are free with Kindle Unlimited and available in paperback.
