Llanegwen – on the coast of North Wales – used to be an attractive, healthy place for respectable people. But now it’s a mixed bag of allsorts — there’s a masked rapist stalking the streets, a petty thief with an eye to the main chance and anonymous businessmen who take over the local sweet factory after a highly convenient death. And when there is a polite and discreet demonstration by the workers outside his home, Mark Treasure is drawn into a fight to save their pension fund and even their jobs.
Treasure needs all his skills as a banker to uncover the layers of greed and deceit at the factory. But he must turn sleuth again when a saucy scamper around the shop-floor ends in a bizarre double murder. Can he get to the heart of the mystery before everything goes sour and another life is lost . . . ?
‘His sense of character is as keen as his sense of place, and the plot, while as thick as the sugar syrup it involves, is also completely convincing. Tasty fare.’ Financial Times
‘Treasure is a likable suave hero’ Booklist
‘An efficient, deft thriller.’ Publishers Weekly
