"Beechmont Riffs" is a story based on facts that occurred in a wealthy middle class Westchester community in 1989. Here, in the lap of secure suburban society -- the American ideal-- a horrifying murder took place. When the bodies were found days after the murder, leads were cold and few. The gripping story of the reaction of the community to the crime, the political effect the crime had on the town's Mayor; and the growing obsession by the police chief sets the stage. Heyward, a post-hippie, baby-boomer self-proclaimed private eye is left to solve the crime and cut the grass.

A wounded soldier and a rector's daughter discover strange goings-on in the sleepy village of Kurland St. Mary in Catherine Lloyd's charming Regency-set mystery debut. Major Robert Kurland has returned to the quiet vistas of his village home to recuperate from the horrors of Waterloo. However injured his body may be, his mind is as active as ever. Too active, perhaps. When he glimpses a shadowy figure from his bedroom window struggling with a heavy load, the tranquil façade of the village begins to loom sinister. . . Unable to forget the incident, Robert confides in his childhood friend, Miss Lucy Harrington. As the dutiful daughter of the widowed rector, following up on the major's suspicions offers a welcome diversion--but soon presents real danger. Someone is intent on stopping their investigation. And in a place where no one locks their doors, a series of thefts and the disappearance of two young serving girls demands explanation. . . As Robert grapples with his difficult recovery, he and Lucy try to unearth the dark truth lurking within the village shadows, and stop a killer waiting to strike again. . .

The destruction of the French village of Oradour and the massacre of its population in June 1944 by the SS Das Reich Division ranks as one of the most notorious atrocities of the Second World War. The scars that were left will never fully heal and there are those that would argue that they should remain as a lesson to future generations. The ruins of the village have been preserved as a memorial to the victims and a new museum has recently been opened by President Chirac. Philip Beck, an Englishman long resident in the area, is very probably the greatest living authority on this appalling event. He has now updated and substantially revised his earlier book and the result makes compelling yet shocking reading. Main Selling Points: * Oradour represents the worst excesses of Nazi cruelty and barbarity. * Large markets both in France and elsewhere. * June 2004 is the 60th Anniversary. * Philip Beck is the foremost authority. * New material and photographs. Author Details Philip Beck now retired lives in France. He his the author of several WW2 books
