When property surveyor and treasure hunter Sam Peters visits the Isle of Wight, the locals are surprised when he literally strikes gold… only to be murdered soon afterwards. The case is given to keen-minded Hampshire-based Detective Inspector Bruno Peach, who - as always - seeks the assistance of his trusty sidekick, headmistress Janet Gibson to bring the killer to justice. Together they seem to be unravelling the mystery piece by piece, but little do they know that their investigations will soon see an older unsolved local killing resurrected from the grave.
This fantastic page-turner of a murder mystery is the latest release from much-loved and critically acclaimed author James London, who brings his usual fresh and unique style to this popular genre. The book will appeal to a wide range of readers, including fans of traditional British detective fare and those who have either holidayed in or live on the beautiful island.
