TITLE: THE TORSO IN THE TOWN
AUTHOR: SIMON BRETT
Details: nr. 3 Fethering Mystery
Jude is having dinner with a family in the town of Fedborough when a torso is found in the cellar of the house. The limbless woman has obviously been dead for a while, but everything else about her is a mystery.
Jude uses this mystery to get Carole out of her self-imposed isolation after a failed relationship, and together the two women enter the social circles of Fedborough.
But this town turns out to be anything but nice, filled as it is with small mindedness, malicious gossip and secrets.
As Jude and Carole learn more, their dislike of the place grows, as does the danger for one of them.
Good mystery, interesting characters and a well written, at times laugh out loud funny story.
