When Herbert Terrell falls off a mountain during his annual climbing holiday in in Czechoslovakia, accidental death seems the inevitable verdict, but Terrell’s young stepdaughter Theodosia is not convinced

Theodosia Barber had been planning to spend her summer vacation in Europe in any case, so what could be simpler than persuading her travel companions to make a minor detour to the scene of the crime?

Bewitched by Theodosia’s beautiful brown eyes and blissfully unaware of her real motives, Dominic Felse cannot refuse her plea for a change of plan. And he’s certainly not prepared for their innocent touring holiday to become a murder investigation, with Theodosia in grave danger of becoming another unlikely victim. . . .

The Piper on the Mountain is the 5th book in the Felse Investigations, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
