Locals are up in arms at proposed Highspeed train link going through their village. Murder follows but who can be responsible.
An interesting selection of characters populate the book, an ex tv antique expert Kat, a writer of saucy love stories Kat’s Mother, farmers, Lord & Lady of the manor plus their young son (he has a star part near the end!), eccentric women, an environmentalist, Sir Maurice’s ghost, plus the local police.
Who can Kat trust to help her solve the murder, who is telling the truth, who is lying & where has the £5000 gone that was stolen by Mr Chips the dog? All becomes clear.
