    "A good police procedural."

    The milkman, who comes to collect his weekly fee and leave the Saturday bottle of milk, finds the Thursday bottle not picked up. This is very unusual. Adelaide Minchin is an early riser and is always there to greet him. He, and everyone else in the village, know that Adelaide keeps an extra key in a flowerpot outside in case she locks herself out. So he lets himself in, and finds Adelaide dead on the bathroom floor. It appears that she fell and that the death is accidental, and that’s what the coroner finds. But her local G.P. doesn’t believe it. He sees no reason for her to have fallen on the floor, and there have been rumors from time to time that someone wants to buy the property she owns for a land development. Sukey, from the C.I.D. comes down from Londond to investigate, putting the backs of the local police up who feel they did a fine job. But Sukey agrees with the doctor that something doesn’t feel right about the verdict. But then Sukey finds herself diverted to another case where teenage girls turn up missing, and a body is found. The two cases begin to seem linked as Sukey, and her journalist boy friend investigate together. This is a good police procedural which makes very satisfying reading.
