AT THE AUCTION OF LORD OGMORE’S ESTATE, A MAN IS STABBED TO DEATH WITH A SILVER DAGGER. Detective Inspector Michael Angel is soon on the trail of a serial murderer in the south Yorkshire town of Bromersley. The only common factor linking the victims is their association with the late Lord Ogmore. But there are no clues, no fingerprints and no DNA. ANGEL HAS ONLY ONE EYE AT THE AUCTION OF LORD OGMORE’S ESTATE, A MAN IS STABBED TO DEATH WITH A SILVER DAGGER. Detective Inspector Michael Angel is soon on the trail of a serial murderer in the south Yorkshire town of Bromersley. The only common factor linking the victims is their association with the late Lord Ogmore. But there are no clues, no fingerprints and no DNA. ANGEL HAS ONLY ONE EYE-WITNESS . . . AND HE'S BLIND. A glamorous schoolmistress with a past, two men with ponytails, a set of needle-sharp silver handled stilettos and a fluffy toy elephant all play their part in a scramble to find the killer. DI ANGEL’S TOUGHEST CASE YET. Perfect for fans of R.D. Wingfield, Colin Dexter, Peter Robinson, Reginald Hill, and Agatha Christie. THE DETECTIVE Michael Angel is over fifty, married to Mary. They don’t have any children. They are a devoted couple but the relationship sometimes breaks down due to his job or due to the problems of Mary’s sister who lives in Edinburgh and imposes on their easygoing natures. Michael works at the small local police station and is devoted to defeating crime, murder, and dishonesty of any sort and has no personal ambition beyond being a good husband and a successful detective. He doesn’t want promotion with all the routine office work and stress that goes with it. He is incorruptible but always short of money. He is always at odds with his immediate chief, Detective Superintendent Horace Harker, who is lazy, a hypochondriac and not a bit interested in assisting Angel in serious police work. THE SETTING Bromersley is a market town at the bottom of the Pennines surrounded by stone and hawthorn-edged fields grazed by cattle and sheep. It is cold as anywhere in the winter but its closeness to the mountains protects it from many gales and heavy falls of snow. The town’s industry today includes the manufacture of ball bearings and whisky bottles, and a huge brewery produces Bromersley’s best bitter, which is considered the finest beer for miles around. Wednesday is market day, and the town centre is host to the frequent cries of stall-holders hawking their wares while the enticing smells of cheeses, coffees, foreign spices and fish and chips tempt your taste buds as you wander through the stalls. The police always find it difficult to catch pilferers and pickpockets in such a crowd. Bromersley folk are easy to befriend but many of the old people are stubborn and still buy their fruit and veg in pounds and ounces, not kilos and grams. Praise for Roger Silverwood “Solid plotting, unpretentious writing, thoroughly reliable entertainment>/b>.” Morning Star “A cast of characters you really want to populate with familiar faces of actors you see each week on TV — great fun. Angel is terrific.” Books Monthly DETECTIVE ANGEL SERIES Book 1: THE MISSING NURSE Book 2: THE MISSING WIFE Book 3: THE MAN IN THE PINK SUIT Book 4: THE MORALS OF A MURDERER Book 5: THE AUCTION MURDERS Bo

    Another good one from Mr. Silverwood Detective Angel continues investigating crimes that don’t seem to add up. There is a series of murders, starting at an auction of the contents of a manor house whose owner has died, and his wife can’t afford to keep living there. The killer uses the same method every time but a different weapon but from the same set. We take up the tale with all the familiar characters from previous episodes, with Mrs. Buller-Price playing a rather important part.

We take up the tale with all the familiar characters from previous episodes, with Mrs. Buller-Price playing a rather important part. Mr. Angel is an unreconstructed authoritarian and when he gives orders he expects everyone of lesser rank to jump — in the next 2 seconds or suffer his extreme displeasure. But his supervisor is incompetent and he’s willing to bend the rules when orders come down to him. He’s doing something right because the other characters recognize he’s unraveling cases they can’t. As usual a fast entertaining read.

    After young Lord Ogmore died, everyone came to know about the huge debts he had incurred during his lifetime. His castle along with all the furnitures, paintings and cutleries were up for an auction. His widow had to shift down to their servants' bungalow, with no servants of course. They did not have money. All of their household was on auction. She was broken. The Ogmore diamond, a priceless piece, could solve her problems but it was already sold. And their Butler is killed in the same auction. F After young Lord Ogmore died, everyone came to know about the huge debts he had incurred during his lifetime. His castle along with all the furnitures, paintings and cutleries were up for an auction. His widow had to shift down to their servants' bungalow, with no servants of course. They did not have money. All of their household was on auction. She was broken. The Ogmore diamond, a priceless piece, could solve her problems but it was already sold. And their Butler is killed in the same auction. Followed by their housekeeper and their doctor. Lady Ogmore's house is attacked when she is out. Someone is searching for something and can kill to get it. DI Micheal Angel, man overburdened with too many cases, now has to solve serial murders too. To top that he has a broken leg, a fraud case involving ATMs, a crook who wants to buy him off, a dishonest colleague and a séance that his wife wants him to believe in. Silverwood has done a great job, punching 3 stories in the lives of "detectives" into the daily life of a detective inspector, who gets shouted at for not completing his work on time. He has to be fast and has to make the charges stick.

    Rating is a 3.75. I’ve read the previous works in the DI Angel series and have enjoyed them. Quick and easy reads. This plot involves fake mediums and seances-murders by Stiletto stabbing and a great robbery scheme. All of the threads come together through the Inspector’s detective prowess. Recommend it.

    Interesting! D I Michael Angel and team are dealing with several different crimes--- murders by stabbing with stilettos, bank fraud, police corruption, and fraudulent medium! He is also on crutches caused by a police incident. Mrs Buller Price is back for comic relief!

    Excellent reading entertainment This book was enjoyable to read because it moved along steadily without foul language or obnoxious mental pictures. The characters were realistic yet

    A proper mystery Roger Silverwood has written another proper mystery for Angel. Actually the good Inspector solves three this time. A determined murdered takes life after life without hesitation in a search for who knows what.

    Angel does it again! Another fun mystery as Angel tried to trap a killer, expose a so called psychic and find a huge diamond. Always fun, these light little mysteries are well written and not easily solved....at least by this reader.

    Tempest in a teapot Somethings evident early on but the chase was the best. No clues! No DNA! No evidence! Angel and his crew found everybody responsible with a neat bow.

    A good read Pretty much on par with all of the previous Yorkshire Murder Mysteries. Some happenings are a bit far-fetched but still is an enjoyable read.

    Good Yarn Tidy little mystery with engaging characters. However the solution to the mystery concerning Lady Ogmore strains credulity. The secondary stories are fine.
