At the Man with a Load of Mischief, they found the dead body stuck in a keg of beer. At the Jack and Hammer, another body was stuck out on the beam of the pub?s sign, replacing the mechanical man who kept the time. Two pubs. Two murders. One Scotland Yard inspector called in to help. Detective Chief Inspector Richard Jury arrives in Long Piddleton and finds everyone in the postcard village looking outside of town for the killer. Except for one Melrose Plant. A keen observer of human nature, he points Jury in the right direction: into the darkest parts of his neighbors? hearts?
Synopsis: Long Piddleton's local inn is the venue for a particularly grisly murder, and one which took place while many of the village's most distinguished residents were on the premises. Scotland Yard's irrepressibly unconventional Inspector Richard Jury is enlisted to help with the murder enquiry.
