Superstition clouds the investigation into a dead body found outside a village church in this historical mystery from the author of Fallen Into the Pit.
A news photographer is found dead at the threshold of the church of Saint Eata, his hand extended to the door’s great cast-iron knocker. Surely it is not a coincidence when a second victim is discovered in eerily similar circumstances?
Legend holds that sinners who seize the knocker have their hands burned by the cold iron, but Gerry Bracewell didn’t die of burns, and neither did the second victim. Did they knock on death’s door, or is a more down-to-earth killer at large? Detective Chief Inspector George Felse watched the ceremony to rededicate the door, but little did he know that he would be called back to Mottisham to investigate murder. . . .
The Knocker on Death’s Door is the 10th book in the Felse Investigations, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
