The Last Resort – an eBook

When things go badly wrong at the Arts Festival Detective Inspector Miles Davis accepts the last resort – and takes a part in the school play that has already seen one death and one serious misadventure.

The Last Resort by John Barber

When Fordhamton is awarded third prize in the competition for Britain’s Most Boring Town the Mayor suggests an Arts Festival as a means of improving the town’s image

Unfortunately the first Fordhamton Arts Festival gets off to a bad start.

The stand-in for the school’s production of The Real Inspector Hound is found murdered during the dress rehearsal.

She is discovered to be working as an Intelligence Officer for the local US Listening Post which has taken over Oates Hall.

The investigation is handed to the recently promoted Detective Inspector Miles Davis who has been working with a special UK/US intelligence gathering unit. He is not remembered fondly in town but tries hard to behave in a more sociable manner which to his surprise begins to yield results.

Suspicion immediately falls on the organiser of the Festival Organiser Art Teacher Jeremy Hawkins owing to his past as a student activist. The shady lives of some of the other teachers are slowly revealed and the list of suspects just keeps growing.

Davis’ investigations are not helped by the anarchic nature of the Festival exhibits, nor a second strange accident to another member of the cast. As the last resort Davis takes the part of Inspector Hound for the live performance and unmasks the murderer whilst finding love in the most unusual circumstances.
