A Colourful Death
A Cornish MysteryBook - 2010
Her friend and neighbor, artist Nick Gresham, returns from a trip only to find several of his paintings slashed, reportedly by rival local artist Geoffrey Clarke. When Nick goes to have it out with him, with Eleanor in tow, they find Clarke's body in his studio, fatally stabbed in the back. Accused of the crime, Nick ends up in jail, while Detective Inspector Scumble and DSMegan Pencarrow, Eleanor's niece, investigate. But Eleanor isn't leaving anything to chance--she starts doing a little investigating of her own, and soon learns that Nick is far from the only one with a compelling motive for murder.
