Postman’s Knock by J F Straker (Inspector Pitt Detective #1)
English | Mystery, Thriller | ePUB, AZW3 | 1 MB
Inspector Pitt has a serious problem on his hands. The postman in Grange Road has mysteriously vanished, and several of the residents who were anxiously awaiting his arrival are very distressed. Has he absconded with the mail, and some particularly important parcels?
As Pitt begins his investigations, a darker alternative comes to light. Has the missing postman in fact been kidnapped, attacked by one resident with a long-standing grudge against postmen, or even murdered? And why had he delivered only some of the letters, and not completed his round?
The vastly different, largely eccentric residents of Grange Road have one thing in common: they all seem reluctant to help the police with their inquiries, and to be hiding something. Was there a conspiracy to get rid of the postman before he could make a certain delivery? Before any questions can be definitively answered, assault, blackmail and sudden death disturb the usual peace of Grange Road.
Postman’s Knock is a gritty village mystery from a master of the genre.
