FLY-FISHING TAKES A KIND OF PATIENCE THAT FEW POSSESS.
SO DOES PLOTTING THE PERFECT MURDER.
For Detective-Chief Superintendent Erskine Powell, the invitation to visit an old friend in the small idyllic town of Houghton Bridge is too good to pass up. With superb fishing on the River Test, the trip will give him a much-needed chance to rest. Still, Powell can’t seem to unwind. He’s a seasoned policeman after all–and although he’s on vacation, his instincts are not.
Then the body of a potential member of the Mayfly Fishing Club turns up one morning, tangled in the weeds along the bank. Powell has no choice but to step into the investigation. In a town where gossip is the only thing more popular than a rod and reel, there will be a lot of deep secrets–and even darker lies–to wade through before he can catch a killer on his line. . . .
