Head of Zeus
The Piper on the Mountain
The Piper on the Mountain Ellis Peters
 The Felse Investigations, 5

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...
