Snow falls on a country mansion as night falls.

Launches 20th January!


The village of Lipton St Faith in Norfolk is a tranquil spot.

The most excitement it sees come from the antics of the local children sent from Liverpool to escape the air raids. Then one day a car accident claims the life of a young man, found with no identification papers.

Anna Grix, daughter of the local vicar and an amateur sleuth, helps local police officer Tom Bradshaw investigate. When they hear that the young vicar from Cambridge being sent to Norfolk has disappeared, Anna wonder if this is connected to the crash victim.

She calls in the help of American serviceman Lieutenant Eddie Elsner, whom she met when he knocked her off her bicycle while driving his new sports car. Now friends, they get to work at solving the case of the unidentified body and the missing curate. But before they’re done, there will be more victims, unsettling the peaceful village of Lipton St Faith and Anna’s life forever.

Keith Finney is an established author of historical mysteries and contemporary whodunnits. For the last twenty years, Keith has lived in the depths of the Norfolk Broads with his wife. During a bohemian career in Further and Higher Education, Keith Finney taught a variety of subjects from carpentry and joinery to supervisory management, the latter taking him around the world training staff on cruise ships, where his various claims to fame include being seasick in the captain’s private restroom in the middle of a lecture, to thinking he was about to be kidnapped off the streets of Port Said. As for the camels …well, that’s another story entirely!

This is the first book I have read by this author. I enjoyed this book which kept you guessing right to the end. The main characters were good and the interplay between them was amusing in parts. I look forward to more in this series.
