The Red Herring by Sally Spencer
Inspector Woodend Series Book # 7
4 Stars

From The Book:
The discovery of the body of a young, red-haired school mistress, lying in a pig-pen with her face half-eaten away, is the beginning of a new investigation for Charlie Woodend. But it is to be an investigation he is soon ordered to abandon when Helen Dunn, the daughter of Wing Commander Dunn - and a pupil at the school where the dead woman taught - suddenly vanishes into thin air. While Woodend and Rutter race against time in the desperate hope of finding the girl alive, Woodend's bagman, Monika Paniatowski, continues to work on the murder, under the supervision of the mysterious Chief Inspector Horrocks, a Scotland Yard man who seems to have only a mild interest in finding the killer. Are the two cases connected? Woodend begins to wonder. And if they are, who is it who seems to be blocking both investigations at every turn?

My Views:
I just discovered this author and this series and must say that I find the stories really interesting with gripping, creative plots. They are not the usual types of mystery and suspense books that I usually read but they are a refreshing break. They are not "cozies" by any means and will satisfy anyone that wants a well plotted mystery with plenty of clues to help you try and solve the crime without the contents of the grittier ones. ( )
