Abstract:

The dramatic theft of an 18th century painting is discovered just moments before the old manor house from which it was stolen is set on fire. Making matters more grisly is the pile of bones sighted in the blazing inferno moments before the roof collapses. What started as simple, if surprising, theft has quickly escalated to arson and, possibly murder, and now Detective Inspector Sloan and Detective Constable Crosby have to piece together, a puzzle which has its roots deep in Berebury's history.--from Publisher's description.
