About this title


When Children's Book Author Oliver Swithin finds his friend's body floating in a Trafalgar Square fountain, he can't convince the police to treat the death as a murder. But then more corpses turn up daily - on a tube station platform, in a botanical gardens hothouse, even in the middle of Piccadilly Circus - each killed in a bizarre manner.
Oliver joins his uncle, Detective Superintendent Mallard, in a race to uncover the pattern behind the murders. But if they succeed, will the solution help them reach the next victim before the killer strikes again?
An Embarrassment of Corpses, by first-time author Alan Beechey, is a comic mystery with a cast of British eccentrics and an ingenious plot.
