In this series debut, an art school teaching gig turns into a high-stakes murder investigation and a " fun-filled romp through the art-strewn countryside" ( Booklist ).
Against his better judgement, laidback painter and private investigator Chris Honeysett has accepted a role as tutor at the Bath Arts Academy and agreed to take part in an exhibition. But preparations are disrupted by a series of peculiar events: a naked, wild-haired figure is glimpsed running through the woods; strange symbols are carved onto trees and gateposts; a metal sculpture takes on a mysterious life of its own.
The incidents, which are initially assumed to be student pranks, escalate in menace, until one of Honeysett's fellow exhibitors lies dead--and Honeysett finds himself the prime murder suspect. It's clear that someone is trying to frame him. But who? And why?
Full charming local color and eccentric yet believable characters, Indelible is a "suspenseful, well-plotted" chapter in a British cozy mystery series that's "a lot of fun" ( Publishers Weekly ).
