The Umbrella Man

By Roger Silverwood

An arsonist and murderer threatens to set fire to the luxury home of the local MP…

Detective Inspector Michael Angel is on the case, and has two suspects. But the mystery thickens when it comes to light that one has completely disappeared, and the other is securely locked up in a police cell. And what do the twelve umbrellas found hanging from his bedroom ceiling mean? Will the ‘umbrella man’ be able to execute his threat while still in police custody?

Meanwhile, the murder of a famous stage magician’s beautiful assistant appears to be a copy of an unsolved crime committed twenty-five years previously. Could both cases be related?

The DI must race against the clock to unravel this unusual and chilling mystery…

Roger Silverwood lives on the outskirts of Barnsley. After National Service he entered the toy trade where he became a sales director. Aged 50 he went into business with his wife as an antique dealer specializing in Victorian jewellery until he retired in 1997.
