Detectives Munro and West get more on their plate than they bargained for in this clever murder mystery. DI Charlie West is investigating a series of incompetent moped robberies when three fingers are found in a refuse site.
The investigation leads the team to a local restaurant, the university campus and, much to their chagrin, repeatedly to the municipal dump. But when a man walks into a jeweller’s shop and calmly bashes in the head of the owner, they have a murder case on their hands. Despite the discovery of a man in some discomfort due to missing the fingers on his hand, the investigation draws blanks.
It will take the wisdom of Munro, officially retired and recovering from heart bypass surgery, to see the connections between these places and events. With plenty of red-herrings, twists and a satisfying ending, you’ll love the latest DI Munro mystery.
TURPITUDE is a standalone in a series of ten books featuring these detectives. They are set in and around Ayrshire on the west coast of Scotland.
