New Forest Detectives

Though it is true that detection, as always, is at the back of Bill’s mind as he sets out one morning to try to get a photograph of a green woodpecker, he doesn’t really expect to find himself at once on the trail of a suspect: but what could be more suspicious than a man who has a beard one moment and is clean-shaven the next?

“Though it is true that detection, as always, is at the back of Bill’s mind as he sets out one morning to try to get a photograph of a green woodpecker, he doesn’t really expect to find himself at once on the trail of a suspect: but what could be more suspicious than a man who has a beard one moment and is clean-shaven the next?
The indomitable Julia (and her boat), Freddy, whose latest invention proves to be invaluable, and even The Mug, supercilious though he might be at first, are all drawn into the case. The results of their investigations may not be quite what Bill expected, but nevertheless Inspector Foster has reason to be grateful for their enterprise.”
