Detective Chief Inspector C.D. Sloan works in the deceptively quiet town and county of Calleshire, where for many years he’s endured the pressures of his demanding and unreasonable boss and the wearying company of Constable Crosby, Sloan’s all too constant but rarely helpful sidekick. With both these millstones about his neck, Sloan is called in to investigate a most unusual death in his most perplexing case ever.
At the Berebury Golf Course in Calleshire County, golfing beginner Helen Sewell has gone off in search of her wayward ball that she has hit into the dreaded “Hells Bells” bunker. What she finds there under the soft sand of the course’s steepest bunker is most surprising and unwelcome – a lightly buried corpse. Now Sloan must unravel a case with more twists and turns than the course itself.
I've now caught up on Catherine Aird's series. This is the latest one she's written.
I'm currently reading Califia's Daughters by Leigh Richards and plan on finishing tomorrow. Then I'll start the Christopher Priest book on Saturday and one of the pb myteries on the TBR shelf at work Friday night; probably Deborah Adam's Jesus Creek book All the Blood Relations.
