How do you solve a village murder when everyone is under suspicion…?
1966, Rural England
Shockwaves are sent through the sleepy village of Trill when a woman’s body is discovered in a local school.
Beatrice Baynes – interfering, overbearing and spiteful – was not well liked. But no one expects a body to be found on their doorstep… And how did the annual festival at Meldon School turn from a light-hearted celebration to a gruesome crime scene?
With the local constabulary completely stumped, Scotland Yard’s Chief Detective Inspector Pollard and Detective Sergeant Toye are called in to investigate.
But the further Pollard & Toye delve into their inquiries, the more complicated the case becomes…
Death of an Old Girl is the first cosy village mystery in the Pollard & Toye crime series by Elizabeth Lemarchand.
