‘The Hanged Cow’ Quirky Crime Fiction


When Mike Malone is called to investigate the murder of a cow, which has been hanged from tree, he hopes that this is just a prank that has gone seriously wrong.

However, when the mutilated body of a young girl is found , he knows that once again he will have to drag the crime-board up from the basement and put his powers of deduction to work as the riddle of the nursery rhyme proves difficult to understand.

Light Hearted Romp

This novel, which is the third in the Mike Malone series, is once again a light-heated romp through rural Lincolnshire and many of the familiar faces from the previous novels return.

DS Alan Shepherd faithfully assists his boss in finding the serial killer behind the deaths of cows and girls but this time without the aid of custard creams.
