Murder Mystery: Judas Goat - The Kennet Narrow Boat Mystery (One)

When people ask me about my writing, I am often a little hesitant, because I usually write in a 'stream of consciousness,' which is not always easily explainable to the reader or layman. So let me start at the beginning of this story, and take you through it as I wrote it:-

It is 2001 when my story begins and like any other good murder mystery, it starts with the discovery of a dead body. On this occasion the dead man is discovered on a beautiful Narrow Boat on the Kennet and Avon Canal near Reading. Set in the unique and tranquil surroundings of the English countryside, this is where the similarity to any other murder comes to an end. This is because the mystery is about the victims identity and not about the method of killing - which is bizarre enough - because this alone can be easily explained by a competent forensic pathologist.

The police detective Chief Inspector Michael Lambert - a jazz loving classic car enthusiast - believes that he has discovered one important clue which might identify the victim, and such is his confidence in this discovery, that he follows it up with a trip to Bulgaria!
