The Parish of Frayed Ends
by Malcolm Noble

Timberdick knows that the local tallyman was only pretending to be dead in the water. And she believes that Widow McKinley died peacefully in her Curiosity Shop. But when the Chief Constable asks questions about a Superintendent who was buried two years ago, our street-wise detective finds that she is investigating three murders instead of one.

Christmas 1965 is a busy time for the cheapest call-girl on Goodladies Road. She has a new baby daughter and she’s looking after a wayward schoolboy. Then three suspects say that they were in bed with her favourite policeman on the night of the murder and Timbers can only see one way forward. She goes to Church and sets a date for the wedding.

Praise for previous Timberdick Mysteries;

“A marvellous creation. Noble reels off a first rate story. Vastly entertaining” – Nottingham Post

“It leaves you begging for the next in the series.” Montgomeryshire Advertiser

“Noble has a fine knack of description, creating a sense of place and atmosphere. Try them.” Portsmouth Post
