Murder at the Loch: A Langham and Dupré Mystery

Eric Brown. Severn, $28.95 (208p) ISBN 978-0-7278-8593-7
Brown’s engaging third Langham and Dupré mystery (after 2014’s Murder at the Chase) is set principally in the Scottish Highlands during the winter of 1955, when memories of WWII still linger in the hearts and minds of the British. Thriller writer Donald Langham gets a call from his old army chum Ralph Ryland, now a private detective, asking him to help their former commanding officer, Major Gordon. Gordon fears that he may be the target of a murderer. The two set off for Loch Corraig Castle, the major’s home, which he’s turned into a hotel. Other guests at the castle include a Hungarian princess, a paranormal investigator, a self-proclaimed poet, and a Dutch engineer who’s in the area to salvage a Nazi plane that crashed into the loch at the end of the war. While Langham’s fiancée and literary agent, Marie Dupré, does the legwork in London, he and Ryland delve for the truth around the murky waters of the loch in this suspenseful outing.
