A man is shot in an isolated village in which the only person he knew was already dead. Was it an accident - or something more sinister? Sergeant Cromwell was visiting a pretty Cheshire village to attend a funeral when he was shot through the head. Littlejohn rushes to his side only to be told that the wound was inflicted by nothing more than a pop gun. Who would want to harm a man in a village where no one knows him? Channelling his grief into motivation, Littlejohn is determined to find out.
