A Shocking Affair

By Gerald Hammond

Henry Kitts was simply doing dog-breeder John Cunningham a favour. So how did he manage to end up knee-deep in the murder investigation of a wealthy Scottish landowner?

At John Cunningham’s request Henry Kitts, the husband of John’s business partner Isobel, agrees to take a spaniel named Spin to his new owner, Sir Peter Hay, to help him settle in. Sir Peter is an old friend, so Henry looks forward to a pleasant week’s stay at his host’s stately home in Newton Lauder.

However, Henry has only been at the country estate a few days when Sir Peter collapses and dies while out training the new spaniel. It is well known that the laird has suffered heart attacks in the past. But this time, the circumstances of his death suggest something far more sinister…

Gerald Hammond worked as an architect for thirty years, before taking early retirement in 1982. He lives in Scotland, with his wife, and has three sons and four granddaughters. He spends his time shooting, fishing and writing.
