Troubled Deaths (Inspector Alvarez Murder Mysteries Book 3)
By Roderic Jeffries
Brandy, Mallorca, murder. Inspector Alvarez is back.
Having escaped his modest English life, Geoffrey Freeman is now the owner of a seven-million-peseta home, and is enjoying the expat way of life in Mallorca. It’s a life of leisure, wine and dining. Until Freeman falls suddenly and fatally ill.
Cholera is the initial verdict. But when the cause of death is confirmed as poison, Inspector Alvarez is called upon to investigate.
All signs point to the love-sick spinster, Mabel Striggs, who helped Freeman embezzle funds out of England. After which, Freeman wanted nothing to do with her.
What appears to be a straightforward case is soon blown wide-open as Mabel falls victim, too. Alvarez must whittle down a whole host of suspects, not least of all the enchanting Caroline Durrel — the object of Alvarez’s hopeless infatuation.
Perfect for fans of Roy Lewis, Brian Battison, J.M. Gregson, Agatha Christie, or Faith Martin.
