A collection of three Inspector Gil Mayo gripping mysteries, all from the pen of master sleuth creator Marjorie Eccles.
More Deaths Than One
When Rupert Fleming’s death is presented as a suicide, Detective Chief Inspector Gil Mayo is immediately suspicious. The dead man lived several separate lives: he had one wife in town and another in the country, yet still found time to frequent the town’s amateur theatre – a hotbed of jealousies and intrigues where nothing is quite what it seems. What does the sister of the woman he loves know about Fleming? And what about the policewoman involved with the theatrical troupe? Before Mayo can sort out the pieces of this intricate puzzle, the murderer strikes again, and Mayo realizes he must act swiftly before someone he cares about becomes the killer’s next victim…
Late of this Parish
The Reverend Cecil Willard is not one of those born to be loved… A scholarly and austere man, ex-headmaster of the local boys’ school, his stern moral principles and die-hard opinions have never endeared him either to those close to him or to his neighbours in the village in which he has lived and worked for so many years. Yet despite his often aggravating personality and presence, no one could ever imagine doing him any real harm…until the discovery of his murdered body at the foot of the altar steps in the church shocks the whole community. As DCI Gil Mayo begins his investigations into the murder, he soon discovers that there are plenty of people in Castle Wyvering who had cause to resent the old man, and one at least who had reason to fear him for the knowledge he possessed. But the question remains: why has Willard been killed?
The Company She Kept
Detective Chief Inspector Gil Mayo has a new addition to his team, Abigail Moon. When they receive a note, it doesn’t mean much to Mayo. And then the discovery of Angie Robinson’s asphyxiated body provides more questions than answers. A search of Angie’s residence soon unearths a link to the note – a link that Mayo needs to investigate the murder from a different angle. What was Angie about to reveal? There are secrets, of that Mayo is certain. But which one of the likely suspects will crack first?
