ARC honest review for Endeavour Press via NetGalley.
If you like classic British murder/mysteries. The George Bellairs books are being republished by Endeavour Press, are well worth reading. With his characters of Chief Inspector Littlejohn and Sergeant Cromwell, with well written plots, plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing and turning the pages right to the end.
This was an enjoyable murder/mystery centred around a strange family and it’s fate.
The trip to Tilsey was meant to be a holiday for Detective Inspector Littlejohn.
But the DI soon finds himself caught up in a network of family intrigue involving hate, deception and murder.
In ‘Crime in Leper’s Hollow’, DI Littlejohn must unravel the mysteries of the Crake family.
Starting with the death of Nicholas Crake, the affairs connected to the family seat, Beyle House, make for a gripping tale, one which George Bellairs tells with humour and suspense.
