This is the first in a trilogy of humour-spiked mysteries from the author of the award-winning SNOWBALL ORANGES series of Mallorcan travel books.
Bob Burns is his own man – a dogged Scots detective with a droll sense of humour, more interested in catching crooks than bootlicking his way up the promotion ladder. So, when his enquiries into a bizarre murder are blocked by his bosses, should he risk his career by carrying on with the job in hand regardless? Abetted by a stunning-though-maverick forensic scientist, and ‘assisted’ by a keener-than-bright young constable, Bob does it his way. The trail leads the trio from Scotland to Mallorca, where intrigue and mayhem add unexpected excitement to a fisherman’s fiesta.
