Death Walks In Eastrepps
on 10 August 2012
Eastrepps, a lovely seaside resort, is stunned by the murder of a local woman. The police are, of course, baffled. Even bringing Inspector Wilkins from Scotland Yard doesn't help as the killer strikes again, and again.
Very atmospheric, slightly dry but this book feels contemporary. This is partly due to the emphasis on the media coverage of the killings and the impact this has on the case. Inspector Wilkins seems a little bland, he's very much the token Inspector, rather than a lead character. As for whodunnit, well you'll see. The authors whip up a fair bit of suspense towards the end, partly due to the high body count - no one is safe in Eastrepps. A great read in a welcome series of re-issues.
