Rules, Regs and Rotten Eggs
by H. R. F. Keating
The Hard Detective must play politics to catch a killer when an assassin targets an ex-Minister of Parliament in this mystery by the Edgar Award finalist.
Former Tory MP Robert Roughouse has a talent for ruffling feathers. Having started his own political movement with the so-called Innovation Party, he also takes every opportunity to loudly defend hunting rights—often resulting in a shower of rotten eggs. But at a recent anti-hunting protest, one of those eggs turns out to be a grenade that nearly takes Roughouse’s life. Detective Superintendent Harriet Martens was ready to resign before she happened to witness the attempted murder. Now she finds herself heading up a truly explosive investigation. Was this the work of a rabid animal rights activist, or is a much more sinister game afoot? Rules, Regs and Rotten Eggs is the 7th book in the Harriet Martens Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
