Mystery Police Procedural
The spectators, huddled against the November chill for the
annual Guy Fawkes celebration in Upper Kingsleigh, were
ready for the customary bonfire and revelry. Instead, one
stunned official made a horrible discovery: the straw-
filled effigy of Mr. Hawkes was flesh and blood — or had
been until somebody murdered the unlucky American tourist
and left him to burn.
Detective Brenna Taylor, Derbyshire CID, is assigned to
the case by the brilliantly intimidating Detective-Chief
Inspector Geoffrey Graham, and soon makes the connection
between the victim and one of the local lords of the
manor. Yet it remains unclear if his death was one of
mistaken identity...or calculated intent. The stakes are
money, lies and family secrets, and when a second victim
is found lying dead in the evening frost, it's apparent
the two victims have strange similarities, as well as the
same calculating — and intractable — killer.
