The Piper on the MountainThe Felse Investigations, 5Ellis 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.

When Herbert Terrell falls off a mountain during his annual climbing holiday in in Czechoslovakia, accidental death seems the inevitable verdict. But Terrell's young step-daughter Theodosia is not convinced. She'd been planning to spend her summer vacation in Europe in any case, so what could be simpler than to persuade her travel companions to make a minor detour to the scene of the crime?

Bewitched by Theodosia's beautiful brown eyes and blissfully unaware of her real motives, Dominic Felse cannot refuse her plea for a change of plan. And he's certainly not prepared for their innocent touring holiday to become a murder investigation, with Theodosia herself in grave danger of becoming another unlikely victim...

Ellis Peters (the pen name of Edith Pargeter, 1913–1995) is a writer beloved of millions of readers worldwide and has been widely adapted for radio and television. Ellis Peters was awarded an OBE for her services to literature in 1994.
