a legacy of death
For one young woman, a sizeable and unexpected legacy comes with the ultimate price-tag; her life.
A rural ideal in the depths of the Oxfordshire countryside is shaken to its foundations when the body of a beautiful woman is found at the bottom of a field-side ditch. Still smarting from the loss of his one-true love, Inspector Leslie Dykeman, accompanied by his irascible side-kick, Sergeant Stanley Shapes, is sent to investigate. What they uncover is a web of secrets, lies, jealousy and greed. But which of these, he asks himself, lies behind such a shocking murder?
A Legacy of Death is the fourth book in a classic murder mystery series set in the Oxfordshire town of Banbury in the early 1960s by British author Ben Westerham. If you like classic murder mysteries with a touch of romance and a streak of humour, then you’ll love these.
