Rafferty & Llewellyn Mystery Series

Down Among the Dead Men #2

When beautiful Barbara Longman is found dead in a meadow, uprooted wildflowers strewed about her, and, in her hand, a single marigold, British Detective Joe Rafferty at first believes the murder may be the work of the serial killer over the county border in Suffolk.
*
But then he meets the victim’s family – and after liaising with the Suffolk police, he rapidly comes to believe that the mystery killing is the work of a copycat…one much closer to home; someone among the descendants of the long-dead family patriarch, Maximillian Shore.
*
Everyone, it seems, had a motive: Henry the grieving widower; the victim’s brother-in-law Charles Shore, the ruthless tycoon; Henry’s first wife, the Bohemian Anne, who has lost the custody of her teenage son, to the saintly Barbara.
*
Even the long-dead patriarch, Maximillian Shore, seems, to Rafferty, to have some involvement in the murder, though how, or why, Rafferty doesn’t understand until he finally grasps the reason for the killing. A truth sad and dreadful and which had been evident from the start, if only he had had the eyes to see.
