The Death on the Downs

ebook
'King of the witty village mystery' Daily Telegraph 'Simon Brett writes stunning detective stories' JILLY COOPER 'A new Simon Brett is an event for mystery fans' P. D. JAMES It wasn't the rain that upset Fethering resident Carole Seddon during her walk on the Downs, or the dilapidated barn in which she was forced to seek shelter. No, what upset her was the human skeleton she discovered there, neatly packed into two blue fertiliser bags . . . Amateur sleuths Carole and Jude go to the small hamlet of Weldisham where gossips quickly identify the corpse as Tamsin Lutteridge, a young woman who disappeared from the village months before. But why is Tamsin's mother so certain that her daughter is still alive? As Jude sets out to discover what really happened to Tamsin, Carole digs deeper into Weldisham's history and the bitter relationships simmering beneath the village's gentle facade.
