So who is the unlikely hero of Death Duty, Deadly Tide, Dead Money and Death la Carte? 

The first book in the series is set in 1999, with the world on the brink of a new millennium. Meanwhile, Detective Inspector Jack Mowgley is on the brink of enforced early retirement. Or worse. Attitudes are changing, and senior officers think people like Mowgley have no part to play in the Modern Police Force.

For sure, Jack Mowgely is caught in a time-warp with regard to policing policies and procedures, and PC he most definitely ain뭪.

Divorced and dispossessed of his home, Mowgley sleeps where he can and takes consolation in drink, roll-up fags and Cornish pasties. He is kept sane and employed by his loyal and uber-long-suffering assistant, Detective Sergeant Catherine McCarthy.

Here뭩 how the action starts in the latest Mowgley Murder Mystery:

The man was slumped forward, head down and arms outstretched to either side at shoulder level. His hair was long and tangled and wet from the sea, and was crowned with a circle of barbed wire.  

The grim tableau reminded Mowgley of the life-sized crucifixion scene above the altar at the church he attended every Sunday as a small boy.  He had not attended regularly because he had been religious, but because there was a cream bun and cup of tea in the Vicarage after the service as a reward for a show of piety and attention. He had noticed that one or another of the prettier boys would be invited to stay behind afterwards, but had thought nothing of it until the Vicar had been arrested and charged with what was commonly known in those less concerned times as kiddie-fiddling.  On later reflection he took being passed over for special attention as some compensation for being an ugly child.

More barbed wire secured the drowned man뭩 arms to one of the barnacle-encrusted lateral struts stretching between the massive iron pillars on which the pier sat. His killer or killers had obviously chosen a strut which was of a height to ensure that their victim was just able to stand on tiptoe. This, Mowgley realised with a wince, was not to allow him to take the strain off his arms, but to ensure he would remain conscious for the maximum time it took the incoming tide to reach his mouth and nose.

멗 suppose, what with it being February, Mowgley observed, 몋hey weren뭪 too worried about any courting couples hearing him shout for help.

멞ot much danger of that, mate his colleague said dryly, 몋hey cut his tongue out before they left him to wait for the tide.
