Book description
Haiku summary

"Dennis Brinkley is a warm-hearted, if slightly odd, fellow: he's a solicitor helping out with the business affairs and estates of some of Forbes Abbot's wealthiest villagers. But he's also a collector of vintage torture devices and brutal, ancient war weapons, the likes of which most of the tiny hamlet's residents would rather not know exist, gathering dust in Brinkley's museum-like home near the outskirts of town. Still, he's well liked, so when his bloody, pulverized body is found, quite dead, laying beneath the rustic timbers of an authentic torture device so vicious and complicated as to be blood-curdling, there is sufficient unrest in town to call in Chief Inspector Barnaby and his faithful, plodding partner Troy." "Barnaby and Troy are experts at uncovering the sordid details of the lives of the English countryside's most secretive residents, and they soon go to work at Forbes Abbot. Was Dennis Brinkley done in by crooked business partners, a teenage seductress, or a couple of would-be publishers who've just inherited - and then lost - millions? Or perhaps it was tired, timid little Benny Fraye, who wouldn't hurt a fly - would she? Barnaby and Troy will soon find out just who set in motion the gruesome machine that crushed the unfortunate victim."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
