Good Reads Synopsis:
THIMBLE DOWN is a country village where death and malice lurk the quiet lanes. When the vile, drunken Bing Rumple acquires a gem-laden treasure, violence begins to follow him everywhere. Where did Bing find such a precious jewel, and worse, is someone willing to kill to possess it? In this fast-paced adventure, the village bookmaster, Mr. Dorro, and his young companions Wyll Underfoot and Cheeryup Tunbridge are in a desperate race to find the answer—before death comes to Thimble Down.
The patrons at the Hanging Stoat were running in every direction and shouting, while others scurried over to see what was going on. “Murder! Mayhem! Get the Sheriff!” they yelled.
Mr. Mungo echoed the refrain himself: “Murder? In the Hanging Stoat? Again?” (It wouldn’t be the first time, nor the last, Mungo thought to himself.)
