The author of The Man at the Wheel brings back Scotland Yard's Inspector Peckover in this "valuable addition to the classic British detective" (The New York Times). A femme fatale . . . or a female Jack the Ripper? It's springtime in France-the season of love in the country of romance. But Scotland Yard Insp. Henry Peckover has murder on his mind. The local police have asked him to make some inquiries about Mrs. Mercy McCluskey, a Frenchman's lusty American wife. It seems a former boyfriend of this most-liberated lady has turned up dead. Then a second . . . and a third! Before long, Inspector Peckover has uncovered an IRA connection, a gin-swilling gunrunner, a mysterious killer with a very French twist, and another potential corpse-his own . . . "With bits of Peckover's naughty light verse, a tad of slapstick, and lots of French food: a jaunty, somewhat silly black-comedy." -Kirkus Reviews Praise for Michael Kenyon Kenyon's latest offering blends the easy pleasures of a classic cozy with the earthy gallows humor of a modern cop tale." -Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Peckover and the Bog Man "Line for line, Michael Kenyon's is the wittiest and freshest of all crime fiction. It's sharp, sparky, intelligent, and warm. Seek out the Bard of the Yard; you'll be glad." -Peter Lovesey, Mystery Writers of America 2018 Grand Master, on Kill the Butler!
