Drew Slocombe/West Country Mysteries Synopsis: Dark Undertakings by Rebecca Tope is the first book in the Drew Slocombe series. Jim Lapsford is an unusual corpse; a health freak who died of a heart attack, according to his GP. As a former nurse, Drew Slocombe disagrees, thinking there’s enough evidence to get the coroner to look into it. However, Jim left a wife, two sons and a slew of mistresses behind. With Jim’s cremation only days away, Drew needs something more than suspects – he needs proof.
