With their enquiries ongoing, Clive Knowles approaches them for help - his sheep are being threatened by the gang of rustlers that is plaguing the Dales. Meanwhile, Poacher Pete Ferris has also decided to play his hand, setting in motion a blackmail plot which will ensure Samson is pulled back into trouble with his nemesis Rick Procter.

“Brilliant addition to the series”
I loved the latest addition to The Dales Detective Agency series. Another great read and a brilliant mystery. I couldn’t guess the culprits at all!
I have enjoyed all the books in the series so far, if you’re looking for a change from the graphic details and gore so many crime books favour now these are ideal. They won’t give you nightmares
