Available on Amazon for Kindle, a nostalgia trip and murder mystery written by Nick Garnett, a former reporter on the Financial Times.
Itís 1954 and the body of a young woman is found on a bleak and desolate Ilkley Moor. Below, local communities go about their regular business - Stephen Shaw tries to protect his textile empire, his fashion-conscious wife, Jennifer, worries about the renovation of her kitchen and the constabulary busy themselves solving crime and preparing for the visit of a young Queen Elizabeth II.
Meanwhile, Britain is emerging from post-war austerity and a bright new era is dawning - rationing is soon to end, Elvis Presley is being discovered and air travel is opening up to the ordinary citizen. Yet some of the old ways remain - AA men still salute passing members and murder can be punished by death. So who might swing for the murder of Moira Nelson? DI Ray Stafford comes to terms with a changing world and puts his faith in traditional detective work to uncover Moiraís killer.
