A Bob Robbins Home Front Mystery
Cozy crime with a sinister twist – a World War II rural police procedural
Cornwall, England, 1943. Dumpy, grumpy wartime Detective Segreant Bob Robbins is called out to investigate a suspicious suicide in a remote moorland pool. Gogmagog Ditch has a history steeped in Cornish folklore, but what attracted the victim to such a desolate spot and why?
The victim, Dr Corin Lanyon, was liked by all and loved by many – especially women. As Bob untangles his various relationships and close connection to a Celtic Circle heritage group, he confirms the doctor’s death was neither accident nor suicide.
Ably assisted by keen young PC Laurie Oliver, Bob reveals a web of criminality, deceit, stolen museum artefacts – and various persons of interest.
The discovery of a second body in an ancient stone circle means Bob and Laurie must learn exactly how the murders were committed, starting with another visit to the bleak moorland pool, and the discovery of a sacred cave in a hollow hill.
