MURDER UNDER THE BRIDGE an addictive crime mystery full of twists (Arnold Landon Detective Mystery and Suspense Book 8) Kindle Edition
Then meet Arnold Landon, mild-mannered history buff turned amateur sleuth.
“The skilful Mr Lewis has made Arnold Landon an unforgettable character.” New York Times
Originally published as Bloodeagle.
A twisted MO torn straight from the history books.
Arnold Landon steps out with his lady friend, hunting for relics on the deserted dig site where he works.
Before long, they stumble on something under a bridge. The mangled remains of Arnold’s fellow historian.
His chest gapes open, his insides arranged in a pair of bloody wings.
Arnold’s no expert, but he knows a bloodeagle when he sees one — the handiwork of a berserker warrior. Mad with blood lust and out for vengeance.
Who will believe that’s possible? The police are skeptical. But as the body count rises, Arnold’s wild theories become harder to discount.
Can he piece it all together before the killer strikes again?
Fans of Elly Griffiths, Peter James, P.D. James, Damien Boyd, Helen H. Durrant, J.D. Kirk, Bill Kitson and Peter Robinson will devour this intriguing mystery.
What everyone is saying about the Arnold Landon mysteries:
“Assembling layer upon layer of details . . . Lewis brings an insidious cleverness to his latest offering . . . canny enough to keep us enthralled.” Publishers Weekly
“A pleasure to pick up.” Irish Times
“Right atmosphere of menace in this highly charged mystery.” Booklist
“This intelligent, nicely textured mystery gathers speed and races to a thrilling conclusion.” Kirkus
“Good Northern atmosphere and neatly satisfying plot.” Times Literary Supplement
“Always a good read.” Berys
Planning Officer Arnold Landon is inhibited and painfully aware of his lack of academic credentials. He lives in the North East of England and as self-taught archaeologist he confounds academic experts with his detailed knowledge, which involves him in a local murder. His expertise brings him promotion to the Archaeology Department where he meets frustration, which he nevertheless overcomes by making important discoveries of ancient artefacts while playing a leading role in solving local crimes. A succession of opportunities for further promotion pass him by because of his desire to remain in touch with the detailed history of sites in Northumberland and this leads to more conflict, first with his inadequate superior and then with the stunningly beautiful Karen Stannard and, later in his career, the Italian archaeologist Carmela Cacciatore.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There is a viking style beserker on the loose and there is pairing up but not for Arnold and Jane. If only Jane were an old stone.
The ending builds to high drama but leaves you guessing.

The background in the books is always well researched an the historical detail spot on. I can give no better recommendation for these books than by saying I am always a little sad when I have come to the end of a book and I realise the story is over and I am not going to get any further insight into the relationships between the series main characters.
In this particular book I had identified the murderer well before the end, but there was still a twist that I had not identified.
