‘No Bells’, by F M Meredith

Published by Oak Tree Press, 2012. ISBN: 978-1-61009-086-5

Gordon Butler of the Rocky Bluff Police Department has found love with Benay Weiss.  So when Benay telephones him hysterical with the news that her best friend Geri Rowe has disappeared Gordon swings into action.

But nothing is as it seems, and when a body is found, soon Gordon is struggling with the evidence pointing to his beloved Benay as the prime suspect.

Cleverly plotted, as the story twists and turns I kept having to revise my own assessment as to whodunit.  For Gordon, as he learns that there are things about Benay he didn’t know, he tries desperately to hang on to his belief in her innocence.

With some great characters and a tightly woven story that keeps you guessing to the end, this is not to be missed.
