In the fifth Inspector Skelgill novel, the maverick British detective faces what is his greatest challenge yet, as he strives to overcome an error of judgement that could leave his career - and his life - in tatters.

A STAND-ALONE MURDER MYSTERY, #9 IN THE SERIES. MEET MAVERICK BRITISH DETECTIVE DI SKELGILL... "MAD, BAD AND JUST A LITTLE BIT COZY." WHEN LATTER-DAY LOTHARIO and expert kayaker Roger Alcock disappears on the night of the 'Great Cockermouth Flood', his attractive wife Maeve takes 24 hours longer than might reasonably be expected to notify the authorities. But when Roger's corpse washes up on the Solway coast, a post mortem suggests his death could legitimately be classified as misadventure. DI Skelgill, however - engaged as a rescuer to the inundated Cumbrian town - detects a sinister undercurrent that pervades the tightly knit community in which Roger Alcock moved. As the floodwater recedes, reasons surface why Roger's erstwhile associates might celebrate his demise. Could this be a murder - of the kind that suits the innocent as well as the guilty to hold their peace? Could spurned lovers and fleeced creditors and others who might benefit be acting in silent concert? Jealousy, revenge, greed... these are sentiments that trouble Skelgill - for he realises that unless he can divine a motive, he cannot begin to ascribe a crime. To penetrate the mystery he enlists a female duo, a visiting TV reporter, and the sister-in-law of the late Roger Alcock. But are these alluring ladies simply playing him for their own devices? While DS Jones is temporarily absent, Skelgill becomes doubly conflicted. Barely treading water in the case, he flounders in the perpetrator's wake. Can his famous 'sixth sense' come to his rescue in time - or will a second murder erase forever all trace of the killer?

ONE WEEK AFTER THE DEATH of his 93-year-old twin brother, the reclusive Declan Thomas O'More is found murdered in his study at the ancestral family estate, rambling and isolated Crummock Hall. Suspicion immediately falls upon his five great nieces and nephews, who between them stand to inherit the considerable proceeds of their grandfather's will - along with a valuable library of antiquarian books, a collection that is Declan's lifetime work. And yet each member of this generation - which includes a famous actor and a successful author - is apparently wealthy in their own right. Why would any of them murder their great uncle? DI Skelgill and his team must unravel a mystery that not only harks back to the tragic drowning of the children's parents in Crummock Water in the 1980s, but may also have its roots in the despicable Triangular Trade that enriched so many British and Irish merchant families in the eighteenth century.
