When he left his cottage to pick a few vegetables from his garden, Reverend Aloicius Quayle hadn’t intended lying face down on the cold earth with the morning sun on the back of his head and a vine of runner beans crushed under his chest. He also hadn’t intended to have a twenty centimetre bone handled brushed stainless steel knife stuck in his lower back.
But sometimes life doesn’t work out as planned, as Reverend Quayle discovered. Before long more religious murders have Detective Inspector Angus Slooth and Detective Constable Sarah Flemons struggling to find the answers. How is the same gun involved in three unrelated murders over the course of seven years? And why are the murders linked by an old nursery rhyme?
When Angus, a confirmed bachelor, meets Julie Benning, the probation and parole officer of one of the main suspects, he can’t help falling head-over-heels in love with her. And his infatuation grows when he discovers she’s a Wiccan witch with some extraordinary powers.
A story of love, of hate, of hope, and of despair, ‘On Whom The Axe Falls’ will leave you guessing right to the final chapter. Who killed whom? There’s only one way to find out.
(‘On Whom the Axe Falls’ is also available in Kindle format at https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01FWAHQQI/ )
