Murder At The Lodge

By J M Gregson

‘They’re respectable people, known to me personally…’

As the Masonic Lodge Ladies’ night draws to a close and the guests drift away, a man is found in the car park, garrotted at his steering wheel.

Moments later, the police are called out to attend the scene of a burglary. But nothing in the house seems to be stolen…

DI Percy Peach has always taken a special pleasure in taunting his superior, Superintendent Tucker, about the indiscretions of his fellow Masons.

And now with a dead body found at a Masonic function, the inspector has been given a free hand to dig up any amount of dirt about the secret order.

Blackmail and bribes run rife throughout.

Debts lead to threats and violence.

Infidelity leads to maddening jealousy.

And some feuds last a lifetime.

As the murder enquiry unfolds, Percy Peach and his colleagues find themselves unearthing the seedier side of East Lancashire’s elite.

With alibis contradicting one another and emotions running high, the Masonic lodge grows into a collection of suspects who each held a motive to pursue revenge…

Murder at the Lodge is a chilling mystery that will keep you guessing.
