Overview

All the Reverend Francis Oughterard had ever wanted was some peace and quiet, instead he becomes entangled in a nightmare world of accidental murder, predatory female parishioners, officious policemen and a drunken bishop. As the vicar's life spirals out of control it is his supercilious cat, Maurice, and bone obsessed hound, Bouncer, who save the day.

A Load of Old Bones is a charming and farcical romp through a 1950's mythical Surrey.

Praise for Suzette A. Hill:

'Perfect one-sitting summer read.' Laura Wilson, Guardian

'E F Benson crossed with Jerome K Jerome' The Times audiobooks review

'Quite why this series should be charming, astringent and witty, instead of emetically twee, I am not sure, but it is entirely delightful' Guardian

'This dry, funny British gem, with its eccentric cast of characters, will have readers laughing and eagerly awaiting the next episode' Publishers Weekly
