9780749083854: Mushroom Man (Di Charlie Priest Mysteries)

There’s nothing Detective Inspector Charlie Priest hates more than a case involving children. When Georgina, the eight-year-old daughter of local businessman Miles Dewhurst, goes missing, Charlie and his colleagues soon start to fear the worst. And Charlie’s suspicions are focussed on Dewhurst--is his performance as a desolate parent a little too pat? Meanwhile, these are dangerous times for clergymen. Three have died suddenly, and a picture of a Destroying Angel mushroom has been left beside the body of the most recent victim. It seems that something more than coincidence links the deaths--but why would a serial killer focus on men of the cloth? As he races against time to find Georgina, and discovers the first clue in the hunt for the Mushroom Man, Charlie Priest has another preoccupation--his tentative pursuit of bishop’s widow Annabelle. And Charlie’s courtship is about to take a dramatic turn--for he is more deeply embroiled in one of the cases than he realizes...

About the Author:

STUART PAWSON had a career as a mining engineer, followed by a spell working for the probation service, before he became a full-time writer. He lives in Fairburn, Yorkshire, and when not hunched over the word processor likes nothing more than tramping across the moors, which often feature in his stories. He is a member of the Murder Squad and the Crime Writers' Association.

Review:

"'There's plenty of flair in the plot, and it all gels magnificently in this tale of a serial vicar-murderer" Yorkshire Post 'An intellectual and earthy detective, Charlie Priest could well become for Yorkshire what Wycliffe is for Cornwall' Publishing News"

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. When Georgina, eight-year-old daughter of businessman Miles Dewhurst, is kidnapped, DI Charlie Priest and his colleagues at Heckley police station soon start to fear the worst.

Meanwhile, these are dangerous times for clergymen. Two are found dead under suspicious circumstances and a third is murdered by a shotgun blast. The deaths are linked by a picture of a Destroying Angel mushroom, left beside the body of the most recent victim, but why would a serial killer focus on men of the cloth?
