To Mourn a Mischief

By Keith McCarthy

The grisly death of a young girl resurfaces after twenty-two years. The coroner’s open verdict comes under scrutiny…

Sasha Grove-Williams hated her wealthy father’s dubious business affairs – and ended up dead on a railway track. But did she jump or was she pushed? That’s the burning question for Chief Inspector Beverley Wharton when a raving answerphone message from the now dementia-suffering coroner of the day falls into her hands.

She and her pathologist lover Dr John Eisenmenger – an expert in forensics – are immediately plunged into a messy world of corruption and violence that seems to envelop everyone.

Who is the father of the Sasha’s foetus that unexpectedly comes to light? How can Beverley be mired in the charge of collusion? What evil will Stephen Grove-Williams not stoop to in order to end the snooping? What will John make of Beverley’s bid to blackmail a villain to feather her own nest? Can science triumph over treachery?

Keith McCarthy’s sardonic crime mystery To Mourn a Mischief will appeal to fans of the television drama series Silent Witness.

Keith McCarthy is a working pathologist, living on the edge of the English Cotswolds with his wife and three daughters. He is the author of the critically acclaimed John Eisenmenger forensic mystery series, which includes: A Feast of Carrion, The Silent Sleep of the Dying, The Final Analysis, A World Full of Weeping, The Rest is Silence, With a Passion Put to Use, Corpus Delicti and A Furnace too Hot.
