Death in Cornwall is quirky, comforting and incredibly meta. DCI Arthur St. Just is going on holiday to get away from crime and murder, but you know the proverbial is going to hit the fan. That is teased mercilessly. We laugh along at Arthur’s luck as he cannot escape. If a small-town mystery with this kind of humour is your thing, you’ll get a kick out of this novel.

“The Cry of the Hangman has a real corker of a mystery plot – twisty, accomplished and page-turning. If you like a complex puzzle that ties together neatly at the end, this is the book for you! I loved this book – and I’m excited for you to read it too.”
