Puzzling case for Griffiths
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. EntriestoAlexGordon, House competition.
