About this title


MysteryLarge Print EditionWhile out on a local shoot, Wallace James suffers a heart attack and is forced to modify his active life. With an innate inquisitiveness and time on his hands, Wallace becomes fascinated by the tragic death of a local landowner. Drowned while fishing, Kenneth Berry had as his would-be rescuer his long-term enemy, Colonel Ivor McInsch MP. Wallace now spends his days watching life go by from the window of his flat, listening to a CB radio on which he hears a mysterious conversation that sets his nose twitching. McInsch, it seems, is being blackmailed . . .

From Booklist:

Normally, outdoor enthusiast Wallace James runs a sporting-goods shop, but since suffering a heart attack, he's confined to his easy chair, where his most vigorous activities include watching the town square and listening to his CB radio. When Wallace overhears a mysterious snippet of conversation on his CB alluding to blackmail, he figures he's on to something. Was much-despised estate owner Ken Berry's drowning death not the accident it appeared? And was the kiss of life administered to Berry by his archenemy, Colonel McInsch, intended, not to save the victim, but to hasten his death? Piecing together the evidence, Wallace eventually learns the sad and surprising truth about the two men. Set in Scotland and featuring his trademark sporting focus, Hammond's latest offers a solid, no-frills plot, a relaxed, understated writing style, a dollop of dry wit, and a cast of engaging characters. An excellent choice for those who like a no-nonsense, straightforward mystery. Emily Melton
