Death of a High Flyer
by D.P. Hart-Davis
International multi-millionaire trader Hansi Hartzog has bought Dunmorse Hall, jewel in the crown of the Starcliffe valley, and he’s improved the shoot, brought in new money and generally shaken things up.
But not all the locals approve of the changes. They can’t walk in the woods, dead vermin adorn the fences and there are grumbles about over-production of game birds. There are boundary disputes, rumours of affairs and unsettling co-incidences.
Here is a community in flux: eastern european farm workers, poachers, badger culls, TB testing, in-comers and old-school locals, financial and emotional tensions. Hansi organises an ambitious charity High Flyers Day raffle for which the winner can invite seven guests to shoot on donated drives at four different local shoots.
But on the day, a shocking death rocks the village. Can DCI Robb, recently widowed and recovering from injury, solve the crime before more damage is done?
