The Sound of Murder
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Sound of Murder
When Sid and Minnie hear a loud noise from the back of their van, they think it’s the engine stalling. Hours later, Sid discovers a corpse… The body is of Halberd Corsair, one of London’s finest tycoons and entrepreneurs, whose home and work is the grand Termini building.The official report suggests it was an accident – that he slipped and fell out the window.But gossip is rife and rumours spread that Mrs. Corsair might have done him – it was an unhappy marriage and she profited handsomely from her husband’s death.Not only that, but her opera glasses are found broken outside, just below the ill-fated window.As her health declines over these vile slanders, her nephew and heir to Corsair’s ‘empire’, Keith Antrim, enlists Sir Otto’s help to clear her name.And so, Inspector Borges is brought in. Alongside Sir Otto’s niece, the headstrong Anthea, the pair realise that Corsair’s death might not have an accident after all.It seems on the night his ‘accident’, someone was in the Corsair’s home.However, as Inspector Borges discovers, there are several people with the means and the motive to kill.Could it have been Colonel Summersby, whom was denied an immediate loan that he desperately needed from Corsair to pay off his gambling debts?Or the Colonel’s controlling and cold wife, Claire, who, as always, might’ve took her husband’s problems into her own hands?Maybe it was Julian Killigrew whose unprofitable literary magazine was going to be shut down by Corsair? Or even Keith Antrim himself – who stood to gain his uncle’s business, standing and naturally, the profits?And then, it appears that Mr Corsair might have had a mistress…As the list of suspects grows, it’s up to Borges and Anthea to track down the killer before it’s too late.Filled with intrigue and suspense, The Sound of Murder is a cleverly-plotted, engrossing murder mystery.
