(From the publisher):
Duntisbourne Abbots is a timeless and quintessentially English village nestled in the fertile hills of the Cotswolds in peaceful Gloucestershire. Recently widowed Thea Osborne fears three weeks house-sitting there may prove a little dull, but her first night’s sleep at Brook View is broken by a piercing scream. She assures herself it was only a fox and nothing more sinister, but then a body turns up...
When Joel Jennison is found slaughtered in the same field where his brother’s corpse had lain ten weeks previously, a whole community falls under suspicion. As a forty-something woman with no previous experience of detective work, she knows she shouldn’t get involved, but in questioning neighbours Thea uncovers more tragedy and intrigue than she thought possible.
The first in a new series of thrillers to be set in the Cotswold area, A Cotswold Killing takes the reader on a tense journey along winding roads and muddy paths towards a dramatic and unexpected denouement.
