Lambert and Hook Synopses: For Sale – With Corpse is book 2 in the Lambert and Hook series by J.M. Gregson. When an estate agent is murdered Inspector Lambert and Sergeant Hook investigate a small group of suspects consisting of his four employees, the wife of one of them, and a drunken derelict who knows more than he should.

Dead on Course is book 3 of the series. Amid the luxurious surroundings of the Wye Castle Hotel and Country Club, a man’s body is discovered on the golf course. Superintendent Lambert and Sergeant Hook establish fairly quickly how he died. But the difficult part is not how he died – it’s who did it. The golf course and hotel are set in spectacular scenery beside one of England’s most beautiful rivers, with Hereford’s ancient Cathedral visible in the distance. In May, this incomparable valley is at its best, yet it is a bizarre setting for the investigation of a brutal murder. Gradually, over the days of their stay, Lambert unearths the secrets of the group who surrounded the dead man. The investigation becomes ever more urgent, for even as the suspects play golf and enjoy good food and wine, there is more violence threatened within the ivy-clad walls of the old hotel…
