“The atmosphere is always first rate” – Publishers Weekly
Mike Faraday, a private eye, is hired to travel from his native Los Angeles to a small town named Mudville, population 6,000.
It may call itself ‘The Friendliest Town in the World’, but Mike Faraday is about to find out for himself just how wrong that statement is.
He’s been requested to investigate a missing persons case, but soon his investigation takes a sinister turn…
Soon, a body appears.
Then another, and another.
This murderer has a penchant for ice-picks, and shows no sign of stopping.
And it seems that a local General might be next on the serial killer’s list…
With the corpse count mounting, the suave P.I must overcome his toughest challenge yet, and endure some truly gory events if he is going to solve this case.
Basil Copper’s No Flowers for the General is a gripping thriller. This is a page-turner you won’t want to put down.
