When the boss of the big local DIY outlet is murdered on a moonlit night, all the evidence points to the store’s junior manager. And when police retrieve the murder weapon from the Thames, the manager goes on the run. But Jack and Sarah are not at all sure of his guilt. Can they uncover the real killer before it’s too late for the runaway suspect?
Having recently been disappointed by the first Cherringham full-length novel I was pleased to now read another of the short stories. I still very much like Jack and Sarah, their relationship and the cozy setting but I do still find the writing a little odd. There are too many short jerky sentences that read like they’ve not yet been properly fleshed out. However, these stories definitely work better in short form. This is a quick and cozy, entertaining mystery.
