This review is from: Why Shoot a Butler? (Kindle Edition)
Frank Amberley - visiting his uncle and taking an ill advised short cut - finds a man dead in his car on a country road. Naturally, being a respectable citizen - he informs the police. But he omits to tell them that there was a woman - Shirley Brown - standing beside the car.
What follows is a complex plot with many twists and turns which reveals some secrets which many people would prefer to keep hidden. Amberley is asked to investigate the murder by the Chief Constable as he has had some success unravelling a previous criminal case.
I found the book intriguing and I didn't guess exactly what was going on. The characters are interesting and believable and the villains are suitably creepy. The ending was exciting as it was a race against time. A very enjoyable detective story of a traditional type and I recommend it.
