Homicide in Chicago
First published as Saint’s Rest under Keith Miles.
Chicago, 1931. While the Great Depression has tightened its grip on the world, there are still some who have the means to make their dreams a reality. One of these men is Hobart St John, who wants a mansion in the suburb of Oak Park. For young Welsh architect Merlin Richards, the opportunity to work on the house is an answer to his prayer.
But Richards’ elation soon turns to confusion and fear. A body has been found on site hanging from a rafter. The authorities dismiss it as suicide but how can that be the case when his hands were tied behind his back? Richards’ dream assignment is fast becoming a nightmare, and he realises that the answers he wants might cost him his life.
