But curiosity killed the cat. When the police arrive, it is with a similar carefree spirit that they carry out a routine search of the house. And they, too, come across something they were not looking for.
But the mute society of Yorkshire's back-of-beyond village seems keen to guard its secrets, leaving DCI Hennessey and Sergeant Yellich with a difficult case on their hands.
This book has an interesting storyline, but the writing and characters are a bit flat. If you are looking for interesting police procedurals with a touch of humour I recommend the Bill Slider mysteries by Cynthia Harrod Eagles.
