The Cuckoo (Rufus Stone Detective Stories Book 1)
Categories: British Detective Stories, Police Procedurals
The Cuckoo: A quaint village in Surrey is the last place you would expect to discover a young woman brutally murdered, especially in the first few weeks of the Second World War. As the daughter of the local MP, this isn’t just any murder case either. Which is how it ends up on Rufus Stone’s desk at Scotland Yard.

The Cuckoo begins with Detective Inspector Rufus Stone feeling tired.
He’s sick and tired of having his requests to enlist in the army turned down by his boss. The last thing he needs is to be sent on the trail of a murderer in a sleepy backwater. Especially as this is the very place he fought so hard to escape six years ago.
But as Stone starts to delve deeply into the secrets of the village and its inhabitants, he finds himself dealing with a serial killer, and his own involvement in the case suddenly takes a more personal turn.
Perhaps this murderer is closer to home than he realises…
The Cuckoo is the first in K. J. Frost’s Rufus Stone detective series.
