This is a new Sukey Reynolds mystery.It was an average day at the Mariners Hotel until Professor Lamont arrives late and breathless for a meeting with the guest in Room 106, where the crumpled figure of Doctor Whistler, an ancient historian, is found lying on the floor in a pool of blood. The safe in the room is open and a potentially valuable document, dug up on an archaeological dig in Rhodes, has vanished. The victim claimed it was a letter from St Paul.Suspicion lands on Lamont who was seen leaving the hotel half an hour before he arrived for the meeting. He left in a hurry carrying a bag. When his sister accidentally confirms that Lamont had a knife with him when he set off that morning and returned with blood stains on his clothing it looks like it is going to be an easy case to solve.But something doesn't feel quite right. Detective Constable Sukey Reynolds' instincts are telling her it is too simple. The victim was about to hand Lamont the script so why bother to kill him for it? Her investigations lead to another motive for murder...
