Fifth Son by Barbara Fradkin (115)

This book is an Inspector Green Mystery!

This is a story that makes you wonder if it is murder or suicide until the very end. And even then I had a few questions…

Answering whether it is murder or suicide seems to require an easy answer. But to Inspector Michael Green when a derelict stranger falls to his death from an abandoned church in quiet river village at the edge of his jurisdiction, the question is hard to answer.

However, when the victim turns out to be a long-lost son of a local farm family cursed in recent years by tragedy, madness and death Green begins to suspect something far more sinister at work. Probing the family’s past, he uncovers a family secret so horrific that twenty years later, someone is still desperate to prevent the truth from coming to light.

I loved this story from beginning to end!  I would read more books by this author when given the chance.
