Synopsis

ERSKINE POWELL OF SCOTLAND YARD INVESTIGATES MURDER ON THE MOORS.

On a remote, fog-enshrouded estate in the North York Moors, a murderer lays a cunning trap. The prey, it seems, is Dickie Dinsdale, the greedy landowner who bulldozes people's lives like so many old barns.

Easily a dozen residents of Blackamoor would derive pleasure from Dinsdale's slow, painful death. But, Detective-Chief Superintendent Erskine Powell asks himself, which of them is bold enough to do the deed?

Is it Dinsdale's old gamekeeper, dismissed without warning? The environmentalist he assaulted and humiliated? The sexy stepsister he spied upon? Suspects are as thick as grouse in summer, and bringing down a killer on the wing is very tricky--even for a pro like Erskine Powell. . . .

Malice on the Moors
May 5th, 2014
This novel featuring Chief Inspector Powell is more engaging than previous ones. As the mystery unwinds we learn more about the Inspector and he becomes a character with depth, insights, flaws but the nose of a bloodhound when it comes to clues and the criminal. Did I mention he is arrogant, a lover of nature and probably a simple man at heart! The great descriptions of the moors, grouse hunts and shooting boxes add to the atmosphere of a neat English mystery. I look forward to the next title by Mr Graham.
