In this “hypnotically good” debut, a Nazi murdered in an English village sets Sergeant Felse and his son on an investigation few want solved (Boston Sunday Globe).
It is 1952, and the shadow of World War II still lies over the green fields of the small village of Comerford on the Welsh borders. When ex-prisoner of war Helmut Schauffler is murdered, local policeman Sergeant George Felse has his work cut out: Schauffler was Nazi to the core and the majority of the villagers had good reason to despise him.
Sergeant Felse’s fourteen-year-old son, Dominic—who found Schauffler’s body in a shallow brook—is fascinated by the case. Much to his father’s disapproval, he resolves to find the murderer—a decision that places his own life in great danger. . . .
Fallen Into the Pit is the 1st book in the Felse Investigations, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
