Characters of Huffinfield

With the crazy edicts of the new Police Superintendent, Inspector Deighton
is counting the days to retirement. To top it off, he is assigned to
investigate what sounds like a prank, something about a bird tethered to a
little girl’s hat. The complainant is Lady Carmella, new in town.

Deighton pays Lady Carmella a visit. Her story prompts his recollection of a
case from years back. He explains the people she saw were her neighbors, a
retired circus troupe, engaging in stage pranks. He relates how their antics
caused quite a stir when they first moved to town. Lady Carmella wants to
believe him.

Two days later, the Chief Inspector returns the case to Deighton when Lady
Carmella is found unconscious. In looking for answers, Deighton finds more
questions.

The craziness ramps up. Hijinx, hardened criminals, meat pies, racist
violence, ex-KGB, blackmail, vigilantes, cockroaches, human cadavers,
police corruption, beheaded sheepdogs, candle light vigils, water hoses and
greenhouses…all begin to emerge.  

Deighton needs to find out what is happening in Huffinfield.

Not everyone wants the truth uncovered.

    Mayda rated it 3/5 stars and wrote a review: “Lady Carmella witnesses what she thinks is child abuse. She reports the incident to the police, but then is told the people she saw are really part of a circus troupe, and what she thought she saw was really an illusion. She goes to visit these people at their home, to be friendly. She is given a drugged tea, and nearly dies. Rescued by her cousin Nancy and taken to hospital, she remembers little of what happened. Thus started this strange and quirky tale. Mostly satire, part mystery, and at times making little sense, it is a story of cruelty, racism, murder, black-mail, corruption, and puzzling behavior. Ex-KGB operatives are deadly, but Lady Carmella is not one to give up easily. The writing is somewhat disjointed, with the action (and there is plenty of action!) jumping from one thing to another. The inspector finds more questions than answers as he investigates, (I know how that feels!) but eventually the story winds down to a mostly satisfying conclusion.”
