The strange circumstances of Alan Price’s car crash was just the first in a series of bizarre events. Everything was just fine until that day.
Nothing was ever the same again.
What followed was a mixture of sexual fantasy, political in-fighting and financial skulduggery.
Detective Inspector Harley was not convinced that it was suicide.
As his investigations continue he finds that although no one actually liked Alan Price no one was desperate enough to want him dead.
In fact most people had more to gain whilst he was alive. Price’s ex-wife stands to lose her inheritance, his business fails and the staff are flung into unemployment, the Football Club faces extinction; and a by-election for a Town Council seat has to be called which no one wants to contest.
Harley becomes a spectator in the bars and coffee shops, watching silently as more than one conspiracy begins to flourish.
The problem is unscrambling exactly what it is that the various townspeople are plotting, or hiding from the investigation. Petty vandalism, arson and a dead American Private Investigator just make the situation more confused.
It is his humourless partner Detective Constable Davis who finds a solution that surprises everybody.
