The Merchant's Partner

The Merchant's Partner - new edition

No clues, and everyone's a suspect...

Agatha Kyteler, regarded as a witch by her superstitious neighbours, has no shortage of enemies. But when her body is found frozen and mutilated in a hedge one wintry morning, there seem to be no clues as to who could be responsible.

Until a local youth runs away and a cry is raised.

Sir Baldwin Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, is not convinced of the youth's guilt, and he manages to persuade his close friend Simon Puttock to help him with the investigation. As they endeavour to find the true culprit, the darker, sinister side of the village begins to emerge.

"..the characters and descriptions bring the village and the icy moor to life... The denouement is satisfying and this is a properly clued mystery."
