“It looks like a boning knife, Diane thinks, before the immediate threat to her safety sinks in. Whatever kind of knife it may be, the shimmer of the blade suggests it is sharp.

The daydream finally allows reality to set in. Diane’s heart skips two, maybe three, beats, before she washes her hands as was demanded.|”

Mystery novelist Diane Dimbleby lives in one of the most charming and safest places in the country. So when she discovers a dead stranger while taking a stroll through Apple Mew’s village green, she and the entire town are shocked. Who is he? How did he die?

This isn’t the first time Inspector Darrell Crothers has run into Diane at the scene of a crime. His instincts are telling him he’s going to need her uncanny skills again, but he’s still feeling a bit irritated by her amateur sleuthing.

Diane and Inspector Crothers forge an unofficial partnership during the investigation after an autopsy reveals that the deceased was the victim of a heinous offense. When Diane uncovers an overlooked clue that leads the Inspector to an evil crime syndicate, neither of them can fathom just how far the killers will go to protect their empire.

Now, Diane’s life is at stake and the Inspector must race against the clock if he wants to save her from becoming the group’s next victim.

A curious writer. Double-crossing killers. A determined detective. Murder on the Village Green–A Diane Dimbleby Cozy Mystery is the first in a series of books by author Penelope Sotheby.

If you are a fan of cozy mysteries that contain an ingenious but modest woman sleuth then you will love Diane Dimbleby’s first adventure.
