Murder in a Parish Chest

By Malcolm Noble

Crime & mystery | Paperback


Peggy Pinch, the policeman's wife, is the only one who knows that Tug Macaulay was asleep in his bed when Cedar Wells was murdered. But if Peggy tells the truth, she will not only set tongues wagging but also prove that her husband has put words in the suspect's mouth. Her only way through her dilemma is to identify the real murderer before too many questions are asked. It's 1926 and there's no more wicked place for gossip than the village Post Office before lunchtime. Choosing her friends carefully, Peggy gathers clues from the retired schoolmistress, a peculiar professor and the most unruly child in the village and uncovers the truth beneath the tittle-tattle. Press reviews praised Malcolm Noble's Peggy Pinch, Policeman's Wife as darkly funny, beautifully written and strangely moving. This eagerly awaited sequel has all of those qualities and will delight his growing readership.
