When the crushed body of the unpopular nouveau riche antiques magnate Arthur Rainbow is found in the local graveyard, it falls upon Superintendent George Felse to get to the bottom of the murder

The sleepy village of Middlehope is suddenly jerked into life by antiques mogul Arthur Rainbow. In a whirlwind of activity, he extravagantly refurbishes the manor house; joins the golf club, angling society, and arts council; and—in a ruthless coup—dislodges the old church organist to take over the position himself.

But for all his reforming zeal, the Middlehope community rejects Rainbow. And when Rainbow’s crushed body is found in the graveyard of Saint Eata’s church, there is very little surprise or sorrow—but much speculation as to whom the murderer could be. After all, there are so many candidates—from his young, beautiful, flirtatious wife to the usurped organist and his mutinous choir. It falls upon Superintendent George Felse, newly promoted head of the Midshire CID, to solve this most perplexing murder case.

Rainbow’s End is the 13th book in the Felse Investigations, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
