The FIRST Jack Haldean Murder Mystery. “It’s 1922 and Jack Haldean, young crime writer and former Royal Flying Corps pilot, is enjoying the local fete on a beautiful summer’s day in the heart of sussex. As he remarks to his cousins Isabelle and Greg Rivers, this village life sums up the idyllic pre-war England that he dreamed of during his wartime missions.
But the idyll is soon shattered when Jack’s fellow officer, Jeremy Boscombe, is found dead in the fortune teller’s tent and later on that same day Boscombe’s shady friend, Reggie Morton, is also murdered at the village pub. Jack soon realizes that the roots of the crime go back to an incident during the Battle of the Somme when a party of British soldiers were betrayed, ambushed and killed in the network of tunnels under the chalk of Augier Ridge.” IN STOCK FOR IMMEDIATE DESPATCH
