Death in France

Start Publishing LLC

Henry Bodine is on vacation in Europe, trying to get his head straight after a family tragedy. While in France, he gets caught up in the gruesome murder of a mysterious English girl. Things get worse when the victim’s body disappears and the French police don't believe his story, so Henry sets out to track down the killer. Along the way, he comes up against a range of suspicious characters. What is he to make of Brigitte L’Orly, a sultry French teenager who seduces him time and again? She is clearly hiding something important. And what about the odious youth and his girlfriend who seem to be obstructing Henry? Or the older guy who is obviously tailing him? All the clues eventually lead Henry to a mysterious old man living in a grand chateau. And, along the way, he finds someone to help him overcome his grief.

About the author

David Hough was born in Cornwall, England, a distant relative of the historian, Dr. A L Rowse. However, because of his father's work, he lived in the Georgian City of Bath from the age of two. To some extent his love of books was fostered by a competent English teacher at his secondary school, which was housed in a Georgian edifice called Weymouth House. That building was a piece of history. David never understood why they pulled it down to build a clothing store. On the mortgage-paying work front, David spent forty years working as an air traffic controller in Northern Ireland, Scotland and England. The latter part of his career was spent as an instructor at the United Kingdom College of Air Traffic Control. He retired early in 2003 and dedicated his life to writing. Some of David's stories stem from his own life experience. He was the aerodrome controller on duty at Belfast Airport when troops were flown into the province in 1969. Death in Ireland owes a lot to David's experience of working in Northern Ireland during the period known as "the Troubles.
