When a famous close harmony choir visits Chalk Heath, tensions are rife. DI Paul Ambrose feels a sense of foreboding, but is powerless to prevent the murder of one of the singers. Does the choir include a murderer, or is the death connected to the recent thefts in town? And is there a thief at the hotel where the choir is staying? DI Ambrose’s colleagues make his job even harder. WPC Pauline Meadows has been singing with the choir and PC Sutton’s wife is their accompanist in Chalk Heath. Can DI Ambrose and DS Winters solve the mystery before the choir returns home? About the DI Ambrose mysteries [I am] reminded how pleasant it is to lose oneself for hours at a time in good writing. ...it is as complex, detailed and plausible as any reader could wish - a real exercise for the grey cells and a pleasure to read.
