Michael came from the city soon after and moved into the old cottage after Old Joe died in his sleep - the thatched roof needed a bit of work doing to it but Michael seemed very capable and did a lot of odd jobs for people. He seemed nice enough although he was overly thoughtful and quiet - Aunt Beatrice says that people who come back from the war are sometimes like that, expect no-one else had ever come back. Yesterday Sally Owen was murdered , stabbed in her kitchen with a carving knife with strange symbols painted on the wall with her blood - now the whole village is an uproar demanding that Constable Brown find the killer with Michael the obvious suspect.
"He wrapped himself in quotations as a beggar would enfold himself in the purple of Emperors."
This is a complex scenario containing adult themes, supernatural horror and violence. The setting is a bizarre world of mundane order where NO form of written fiction exists - only factual texts and reference materials.
