Patricia Moyes Synopsis: Down Among the Dead Men (aka The Sunken Sailor) is the second book in the Inspector Tibbett series by Patricia Moyes. Inspector Tibbett is simply trying to have a nice vacation, but crime has its own idea. Tibbett and his cheerful wife, Emmy, are taking it easy on a friend’s yacht, tacking from one little English seaside town to the next, and it should all be delicious indolence… except that Henry can’t stop get death off his mind – actually, one death, in particular. The death of a local sailor. And he especially can’t stop thinking about it when it starts looking as though the drowned sailor is somehow connected to the robbery at a nearby manor-house.
