A book that does not look new and has been read but is in excellent condition. Now an eccentric old lady has vanished, her cottage has been ransacked, and various articles of her antiquated clothing are popping up like mushrooms in the Hemp Valley woods. John Greenwood is the pseudonym of John Buxton Hilton, writer of both the Inspector Simon Kenworthy and Inspector Thomas Brunt series. Inspector Mosley's superiors don't usually court his company: he's thought to be slow and stupid, and he certainly has a gift for infuriating those in authority over him. May be very minimal identifying marks on the inside cover.

For only his intimate knowledge of the district - the hill country of the Yorkshire-Lancashire border - has a chance of making sense of the affair. And the only possible witness—her invalid mother—is missing.

The Mind of Mr Mosley by John Greenwood

After all, he knows virtually every person, and some of the animals, in the area. Yet how could Beamish fulfil his duty when Mosley dispatches him on ridiculous research missions from a Yorkshire castle, to a prestigious law firm, to a dentist in Ember Bay — only to discover Mosley poking about on the scene when he arrives? Mosley's infuriatingly nonsensical trail soon leads to the most isolated farmhouses of the valley, and to an old debt that must be repaid in pounds. . . . .
