Fallen into the PitThe Felse Investigations, 1Ellis Peters

No case is too strange or too baffling for the policeman George Felse and his son, Dominic. Over 13 instalments and two decades, the Felse Investigations will take them from their home on the Welsh Borders to the southernmost tip of India.

It is 1952, the shadow of World War Two still lies over the green fields of the small village of Comerford on the Welsh borders. When ex-prisoner of war Helmut Schauffler is murdered, local policeman Sergeant George Felse has his work cut out: Schauffler was Nazi to the core and the majority of the villagers had good reason to despise him.

Sergeant Felse's fourteen-year-old son Dominic – who found Schauffler's body in a shallow brook – is fascinated by the case. Much to his father's disapproval, he resolves to find the murderer – a decision that places his own life in great danger...
