Whispering Grass

When Jimmy ‘Spotter’ Gould is shot dead within seconds of emerging from London’s Stone Mill Prison at the end of an eight-year sentence for armed robbery, DCI Brock and DS Poole are faced with yet another baffling crime.

As enquiries continue, an embezzling solicitor’s clerk, a dodgy undertaker and a dubious motor trader all come into the frame.  Added to which, a Bosnian doctor and Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs also feature in a tale that eventually culminates in the uncovering of a complex smuggling operation and the arrest of the murderers of ‘Spotter’ Gould and two other players in the scam.
