There is nothing more English than cricket. Few outside British shores understand it. This case makes less sense to DI Winwood than the rules of cricket themselves.
The first victim was a retired schoolteacher with a wooden stake through his heart.
The second was an attractive female student who had swallowed a deadly silver bullet cocktail.
Detective Inspector Steve Winwood did not believe in vampires, werewolves or the supernatural.
Then the bank manager was poisoned with garlic and the odds shortened on a vampire slayer running amok in Rutherford.
The victims all had a connection with the Cricket Club, the letter ‘C’ seemed to mean something. Winwood’s best friend Brian Bennett the local newspaper editor, was convinced that a serial killer was targeting his victims based on a hand of Happy Families.
Winwood’s attention shifted between the owner of a local computer software company, a smart talking banker and the Rutherford Photographic Society. Then a fourth body turned up who was certainly not what they seemed. Winwood got his first break.
