  • Death by Peanuts

    C A Shepherd

Don't be put off by the Christian detective and church setting - it' s very much taking a potshot at ridiculous pompous Christian types whilst not being offensive about the faith. It was very cleverly done. Lots of red herrings but plausible, which is what you want from a Whodunnit to avoid feeling fobbed off. Heartily recommended.

With no sign of a robbery or break-in, it seems the dead man knew his attacker and allowed him — or her — to get close without feeling threatened. For DCI Bentley, the facts point logically to one of Vernham's investigative targets — someone who perhaps wanted something he had discovered to be kept quiet. But what had Vernham discovered that was worth killing for? And which one of his targets could be responsible? As Bentley investigates Vernham's clients, checking each one to discover who they wanted followed, it seems less likely that one of Vernham's targets did commit the crime… and brings up the question: who is actually investigating who, and why?
