The Body on the Doorstep by AJ MacKenzie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
1796 - St Mary in the Marsh, Romney Marsh, Kent and the Reverend Hardcastle, answers a knock at his door late one night, only to find a dying man.
What does his last words mean, what is the significance of the shots heard that night, is there any connection to the various smuggling rings up and down the coast, or is it as the inhabitants fear a prelude to an invasion by the French.
Enjoyed this first in the series and will look out for the next one.
