Publisher's Summary

A mad man's outburst about a body in a mill calls Inspector Littlejohn of Scotland Yard to a sleepy English village.

It's a rainy, uneventful evening in the Oddfellows' Arms until a man bursts into the pub, clearly unstable, and ranting about a body in Fennings' Mill.

The police investigate and stumble upon a body-the face smeared with theatrical make-up and a false mustache pasted neatly over the lip. Once the national news descends, Inspector Faddiman calls in Inspector Littlejohn to help him uncover the dark, hidden secrets in this quiet, provincial town. Soon it becomes clear that a lot of people can't, and won't tell the truth...

About Inspector Littlejohn.

Inspector Thomas Littlejohn of Scotland Yard is a shrewd yet courteous sleuth who splits his time between quaint English villages, the scenic Isle of Man, and French Provinces. With a sharp tongue and a dry sense of humor, Littlejohn approaches his work with poise and confidence, shifting through red-herrings and solving even the most perplexing of cases.

Delightful

Great mystery. Great narrator. The characters are well developed and there is enough human interest to make them relatable with dragging the plot. The plot has complexities that shrouds the conclusion to the end. This is a great book, I highly recommend it.
