The Case Of The Stained Glass Widow

by Douglas Lindsay

A 10,000-word short story introducing DCI Robert Jericho, star of We Are The Hanged Man.

  • The Crime – A man is found brutally murdered in the Chapter House of historic Wells Cathedral, the only clue to his death the knife left buried in his neck.
  • The Detective – Having fled London several years earlier in an attempt to escape public recognition and the notion that he is some kind of modern-day Sherlock Holmes, the last thing the depressive DCI Jericho needs on his patch is a murder.
  • The Widow – The victim’s widow was in Australia at the time of his death. Yet, despite the fact that she was interviewed by the police in Sydney within twelve hours of the murder taking place, Jericho remains unconvinced of her innocence.

When the small city of Wells sees its second murder within a week, Jericho becomes entangled in the world of a widow who seems anything but upset by her husband’s violent demise.
