Overview

When barrister Rex Graves invites a group of friends to Gleneagle Lodge, he doesn’t anticipate the arrival of an old flame—much less a dead body or serial killer. Rex’s houseguest and colleague Alistair, who recently made an unsuccessful attempt to convict a man for the notorious Moor Murders, now finds himself under the same roof as the killer. Rex must use his skills of intellect, observation, and logic to save Alistair’s career and bring the murderer to justice.

Praise:
“Traditional mystery fans will appreciate the retro Agatha Christie style."—Publishers Weekly

"A welcome diversion from today's style of writing...The writing is crisp and the story fast-paced. Challinor doesn't waste time on empty filler, but gets right to the topic at hand."—BellaOnline

"C.S. Challinor delivers a racier cozy in Murder on the Moor...skillfully choreographed."—Washington Post

"Contemporary in setting but classic in style and voice, it'll have you guessing to the very end. 4 stars." —RT Book Reviews

At the start of Challinor's rushed fourth Rex Graves puzzler (after 2010's Phi Beta Murder), Scottish barrister Rex and his girlfriend, Helen D'Arcy, are preparing for a party at Gleneagle Lodge, Rex's Victorian estate on Loch Lochy, home to a reputed sea monster, possibly kin to Loch Ness's Nessie. Guests include the local hotelier, Hamish Allerdice, and his wife and two children; Rex's barrister friend, Alistair Frazer; freelance journalist Rob Roy Beardsley; snobby Cuthbert and Estelle Farquharson; and a surprise visitor, Moira Wilcox, Rex's former girlfriend. Meanwhile, a serial killer of young girls is on the loose on nearby Rannoch Moor. The efficient plot thickens after a storm strands the guests overnight and a drowned body surfaces in Rex's loch. Traditional mystery fans will appreciate the retro Agatha Christie style, but some readers might wish the author had invested her Highland characters with more depth. (Mar.)
