Roger Silverwood, Author.


Detective Inspector Michael Angel and his team are sent to investigate the murder of a pretty young woman.  Inquiries indicate that she had discovered the operation of a Money Tree swindle at Zenith Television.  Angel interviews eccentric Abercrombie, who tows a boxcar scavenging for fuel to heat his cottage, and further inquiries lead Angel to another body.    Also, Angel gets unwillingly involved with a recently married middle-aged couple who have bought a house haunted by the ghost of an alcoholic dentist and his family who died tragically in 1760.    The investigations become more mystifying and dangerous, as Angel races to find the explanation and stop more mayhem and murder.

This is the twenty second in the highly successful Inspector Angel series.



When a man is found dead, and his carer, a good-time girl, is suspected of his murder, Detective Inspector Angel is drawn into an intricate web of family lies and deceit. The dead man's daughter is hiding something, and his granddaughter seems incapable of telling anyone the truth. The pressure is on for Angel to unravel the mystery and identify the killer before another body is found.

This is the sixteenth Large Print Edition in the highly successful Inspector Angel series.
