The latest Hennessey and Yellich mystery - When five corpses in various states of decomposition are found chained to the walls of a kitchen garden, Hennessey and Yellich quickly begin their investigation. The recently deceased owner of the house was housebound for the last twenty-five years, and so would have had no idea of the appalling crimes taking place yards away. At first, there doesn't seem to be much to go on - the victims appear to have little in common - but Hennessey and Yellich know that the dead must hold the clues they need . . .
Peter Turnbull was born and raised in Yorkshire, England. He has had a variety of jobs--in a former incarnation he was a social worker for twenty-three years, an occupation he gave up to become a full-time writer. "Fear of Drowning" is his twelfth novel.
