Mud, Muck and Dead Things
by Ann Granger
Publication Date: 14 May 2018
The first instalment of the Campbell and Carter mysteries
When the body of a young woman is discovered in the cowshed of Cricket farm, the tranquility of the British countryside is shattered. Inspector Jess Campbell is on the case, but with few leads, a grumbling partner, and the new Superintendent Ian Carter piling on the pressure, she’s beginning to wonder why she chose to be a detective in the first place.
The shifty land-owner Eli Smith seems to have something to hide, and as Campbell delves into the gruesome past of the dilapidated farm, the mystery deepens. A flashy Mercedes spotted fleeing the scene of the crime leads to a suspect, but when another body turns up, it looks as though Campbell’s lead is nothing but a dead end…
Book one in the Campbell and Carter Mysteries, Mud, Muck and Dead things will thrill fans of M C Beaton, Joy Ellis and The Midsomer Murders.
