Murder In Little Shendon – A.H. Richardson

Page 3: “Blood flew everywhere, seeping into the dark wood of the desk and into some papers and puddling onto the floor.

Mr Bartholomew Finches, open-mouthed and eyes glazed, his hands futilely clutching at the air, slumped over the side of his chair and onto the floor… very very dead.”

Book Description:

Nobody in Little Shendon particularly liked Mr. Finches. Thereforw, when he is murdered in a rather gruesome manner, the suspect list grows quite long – and includes everyone from his housekeeper to Lady Armstrong and her household staff, the shy librarian, a feisty major, the charming post mistress, owners of the town pub, even the vicar and the pair of American tourists.

What Alice Knew – T.A. Cotterell

Page 60:
“It wasn’t his answer that bugged me but his voice, which sounded as if there was a kidnapper pointing a gun at his head. I suddenly understood that what I’d taken for evasiveness was helplessness, or hopelessness, the sound of a man falling apart.”

Goodreads Description:
“Alice has a perfect life – a great job, happy kids, a wonderful husband. Until he goes missing one night; she receives a suspicious phone call; things don’t quite add up.

Alice needs to know what’s going on. But when she uncovers the truth she faces a brutal choice. And how can she be sure it is the truth?

Sometimes it’s better not to know.”
