Book review: ‘The Body on the Doorstep’ by A.J MacKenzie.
We have another great review from a wonderful patron at the Awapuni Library on The Body on the Doorstep by A.J. MacKenzie.
1796, Kent. Peaceful backwater? Hardly! Be prepared for a story of murder, mayhem, smuggling and treachery. Late one night the Reverend Hardcastle finds a dying man on his doorstep and so begins a tale that swings from one dramatic event to another; told with a wry good humour.
With the able assistance of his friend Mrs Chaytor, Hardcastle sets out to solve the mystery. Smuggling is rife along England’s South East Coast so he first assumes that it must be linked, but there are others who lurk along the Kentish Coast and the Reverend soon finds he may have bitten off more than he can chew…
