Dan Mallett chases a faceless gunman…
1979, West Country of England
When Dan Mallett arranges a secret meeting with the local police constable’s daughter — Julie — in the grand home of her employer, he gets more than he bargained for.
During their liaison, an intruder breaks into the house and is shot by an unknown assailant.
When the police arrive to find Dan’s bicycle outside, it seems he is moments away from being arrested for the crime. Unwilling to use Julie as an alibi, Dan goes on the run, determined to unmask the perpetrator.
Unarmed and with almost no leads, Dan must deploy his full arsenal of tricks and traps in order to survive the deadly chase…
Why was the gunman lurking in the house? Were they expecting the intruder?
And could Dan be the killer’s next target…?
Bait on the Hook is the fourth cosy village mystery in the Dan Mallett Investigation series by Roger Longrigg writing as Frank Parrish.
