The Body in the Bicycle Shed
Peggy Pinch Investigates
by Malcolm Noble

The old schoolma’am says that the accounts of the Church Kneelers Embroidering Circle are wonky, valuable books have been stolen from different cottages and no one knows what to do with the naughty Becker children. Surely these three nuggets of gossip can have no connection with the gruesome sight that confronts PC Pinch in his bicycle shed... The butchered body of a woman whom no one knows in the quiet country parish of St Stephen.

It’s November, 1926. Peggy Pinch, the policeman’s wife, sets out on her third murder investigation. Clues and alibis come quickly, but nothing makes sense. She resorts to burglary, fibs and bizarre dressing up, but she cannot solve the mystery without revealing the most humiliating secret of the Pinch household...

Malcolm Noble’s series of historical mysteries has been described as “suspenseful, darkly funny and beautifully written” (Historical Novel Society). The Body in the Bicycle Shed will enhance this author’s growing reputation as one of our favourite historical mystery novelists.
