An intriguing tale where everyone in a small town is drawn in to an investigation when two bodies are discovered, buried where developers want to build on the freeway. Great characters and a plot to keep you guessing along with plenty of input from the locals about what may or may not have happened at Marlarky Mansion twenty years before.

Synopsis

The Cloverleaf Development by Keith Scales

LIST OF INGREDIENTS: CIRCUMSTANTIAL EVIDENCE, CATTLEDRIVE EATERY AND SALOON BANTER, DISCOVERY OF BODY PARTS, OUT OF TOWN DEVELOPERS.

The inhabitants of Overlook city are not too pleased about the Cloverleaf Development. As the developers begin to dig up the old Malarky Mansion they make a horrific discovery. Intrigue and mystery descend upon the small town, stirring up the locals and baffling Sheriff Wilmot and his unofficial aid Howard.

With its hilarious, colourful residents and deeply buried secrets, Overlook city is well worth a detour.
