Corpse In Waiting
Ingrid Langley and Patrick Gillard - Book 14
To decide to holiday in Bath when you live not ten miles down the road might be regarded as eccentric. But Ingrid Langley and Patrick Gillard, working for SOCA, badly need a break. Patrick is still recovering from being heavily drugged by criminals on his previous case and Ingrid, who would not describe herself as a ‘spring chicken’ is getting over having a baby.
The holiday proceeds sedately enough but then they bump into an old flame of Patrick’s, Alexandra Nightingale, at a ‘Roman experience, togas provided’ party. Alexandra requests Patrick’s help with her property hunt and Ingrid tags along — only to open a cupboard in a dilapidated cottage and make a very gruesome discovery, a decomposing severed head.
