Threats and Menaces
By Alan Scholefield
The roof garden of her luxury apartment block is the only place seven-year-old Dory is ever allowed by herself…
Through her new binoculars she watches a mysterious woman- a woman she has named the Princess of the Pavement People and who lives in the block opposite.
Then one day, as she operates the zoom on her binoculars to look inside the princess’s flat, Dory witnesses an act of terrifying violence…
Meanwhile, Detective Superintendent George Macrae and Detective Sergeant Leopold Silver have been called in to investigate a series of burglaries in the area.
Then the seemingly routine case takes on a frightening dimension when they come across a battered body in an empty flat…
But who has been murdered, and why?
