The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Eating Out - The Dead House Harry Bing­ham Orion £12.99

HAL­LELU­JAH, a new case for DS Fiona Grif­fiths, and it’s as wildly wacky and en­ter­tain­ing as I hoped, with a melee of mad monks, kid­nap­pers and killers.

I laughed out loud at times. Yet, I was bit­ing my­nails whenFion­aandDIAlunBur­nett be­come trapped in a tun­nel be­neath the Bre­conBea­cons. How they ended up there starts at a lit­tle vil­lage church where a young woman’s body has been found in an old bier house where ca­dav­ers were once stored twixt death and burial. Fiona’s in­trigued that the girl’s wear­ing a pretty light white dress yet it’s freez­ingWelshDe­cem­ber. Some­one’s laid her­out­ten­der­ly­with­lit­can- dles flick­er­ing. It’s a puz­zle and Fiona’s in­trigued. Out of her ju­ris­dic­tion Fiona whee­dles her way­roundBur­nett­tostay­on­the case. He doesn’t know what he’s let him­self in for, but soon finds out when the Grif­fiths’ whirligig starts spin­ningan­donething l eads to an­other. The dead girl’s the key to a shock­ing case – a kid­nap ring is ex­tort­ing money from mil­lion­aires to get their miss­ing daugh­ters back. But how does this lead Fion­a­toa­monastery an­da­nun­der­ground cav­ern/tomb? You’ll love find­ing out! Re­view by Alex Gor­don. Name the first Fiona Grif­fiths­book.
