He Died Of Murder

By Shelley Smith

The least likely victim…

When Master Titmarsh, head of the old religious community known as “The Seekers” who devote themselves to farming and the simple life, is found murdered in one of the community’s fields, it seems that nobody could have been guilty of the crime.

According to his order, Master Titmarsh had no enemies, and no one would have had any motive to kill him.

It is only after Detective-Inspector Chaos has moved in to live with the Brotherhood itself that he begins to glimpse the dangerous complexities and grim motives that seethe beneath the apparently placid surface of their lives.

Every member of the order has their own story to tell and, as more and more secrets emerge, it becomes ever more difficult for D.I Chaos to weave these stories together into the truth…

He Died Of Murder is a gripping mystery that makes you question everyone and everything in the search for justice.
