Colours of the Underground – a murder mystery

Colours of the UndergroundWhen a known recluse is found dead on waste land miles from his home Detective Inspector Steve Winwood finds himself being dragged down into a web of corruption, blackmail and political intrigue.

A property development company will stop at nothing – character assassination and dirty tricks campaigns included –  against local Councillors and residents in order to pursue its plans.

The Green Man public house becomes the centre of the battle.


Soon there is another unexplained dead body appearing on Winwood’s patch.  He ran  a private limousine hire company and the first victim had been a customer.

There are many residents who share common views on how to prevent developers from destroying the town’s heritage but they are a well-hidden underground group and rarely identify themselves. Winwood needs them to help solve the case but first he has to find one of their members.
