The Horse’s Mouth (A DI Tremayne Thriller Book 9) by Phillip Strang
A day at the races for Detective Inspector Tremayne, idyllic at the outset, soon changes. A horse is dead, and then the owner’s daughter is found murdered, and Tremayne’s there when the body is discovered. The question is, was Tremayne set up, in the wrong place at the right time? He’s the cast-iron alibi for one of the suspects, and he knows that one murder leads to two, and more often than not, to three. The dead woman had a chequered history, not as much as her father, and then a man commits suicide. Is he the murderer, or was he the unfortunate consequence of a tragic love affair? And who was it in the stable with the woman just before she died? There is more than one person who could have killed her, and all of them have secrets they would rather not be known. Tremayne’s health is troubling him. Is what they are saying correct? Is it time for him to retire, to take it easy and to put his feet up? But that’s not his style, and he’ll not give up on solving the murder.
