A murder victim, a deserted airfield, a sinister project. Can Terry untangle the mystery before someone else dies?
Asked to investigate the death of a building contractor, taxi-driver and amateur sleuth Terry Bell thinks the dead man’s widow may be wasting her money. But when the trail leads to an old airfield and a brace of brutal thugs, he begins to wonder what they’re trying to hide. Tracking down one of the builder’s former workmates, Terry finds him unwilling to answer questions. When the man is beaten up, the canny cabbie gets a visit from his favourite detective inspector. But DI Charis Brown and her latest sidekick seem determined not to get involved. Until the man is attacked again…
In this murder/mystery series set on England’s northeast coast, Six Feet Under is book #4 in the Terry Bell Mystery series.
Six Feet Under by Colin Garrow is a fast-paced, quick read. Once it has a hold of you, it doesn’t let you catch your breath until the very end. Prepare to not be able to put this down.
This is a whodunit, murder mystery with excellent writing. The plot plays out in such a way that you are kept guessing. I thought it was handled well.
The characters are real people. You can’t convince me otherwise. I felt them come alive off the page and absolutely enjoyed them.
Overall, great read! Highly recommended.
