An Accidental Shroud. MARJORIE ECCLES

An Accidental Shroud.


Publication: HarperCollins, 1994, London

First edition. Fine in dust jacket. The body of Nigel Fontenoy, a local jeweler, is found at his cousin's building site. His cousin, Jake Wilding, is the main suspect for many reasons ... he was heavily indebted to the dead man, he told officials that he had no alibi, and the dead man's blood was found in Jake's truck. DCI Gil Mayo and DI Abigail Moon investigate, only to find out that an ex-wife has been pressuring Jake to secure something of great value to the jeweler. Was it a piece of jewelry, an important document, or something even more precious?
