Detectives Munro and West get more on their plate than they bargained for in this clever murder mystery
DI Charlie West is investigating a series of incompetent moped robberies when three fingers are found in a refuse site.
The investigation leads the team to a local restaurant, the university campus and, much to their chagrin, repeatedly to the municipal dump.
But when a man walks into a jeweller’s shop and calmly bashes in the head of the owner, they have a murder case on their hands.
Despite the discovery of a man in some discomfort due to missing the fingers on his hand, the investigation draws blanks.
It will take the wisdom of Munro, officially retired and recovering from heart bypass surgery, to see the connections between these places and events.
With plenty of red-herrings, twists and a satisfying ending, you’ll love the latest DI Munro mystery.

Pete Brassett is the author of the best-selling series of detective novels based in and around his native Scotland featuring James Munro and Charlie West.
Following the publication of his debut novel, 'Clam Chowder at Lafayette and Spring', Pete ventured into the world of crime fiction tackling issues like PTSD, religious scandal, and manic depression with the novels 'Kiss the Girls', 'Prayer for the Dying' and 'The Girl From Kilkenny', before moving onto subject matter a little closer to home.
The forging of the Munro and West relationship begins with a fractious encounter in east London where a dissolute West, struggling with personal problems and misogynistic colleagues, is mentored by Munro who, recognising her potential, hoodwinks her into joining him back in Scotland where she flourishes as a first-class, yet ultimately flawed, detective.
