"Time of your life"
Ego quoque in tempore vitae meae
It is three years since we last visited Rilton Castle and “times they are a changing”. Lady Greta Hollander has died and Mike Ash has become the seventeenth Duke of Bloxworth. He and Tom are moving to Hollander Hall, leaving the village in the safe hands of Finn and Fade, now a happy couple. Patrick is going to join the police and is starting work as a trainee Special Constable with Regina Muga’s team before going to Hendon Police College.
However, this is Rilton Castle after all, so things are never simple or peaceful for long. James Stonely has bought the perfect gift for his wife’s sixty-fifth birthday. Robots have arrived at Ash Farm. Ian Fish has tried to retire and is awaiting a new, sober, replacement. Lucy Barton has a new Chinese client and Ronny Hudd is still collecting strange objects, whilst managing his rock star son, Daria. Things have been quiet for three years but, as the Ash family prepares to move, tragedy occurs.
A teenage girl goes missing. A gang of thieves is targeting farm machinery. A prisoner escapes in the north of England, intent on bringing hell and revenge upon Mike and his family. Regina Muga returns to Rilton to find two killers and to try and save the lives of the people she has come to love over the years. Whatever else happens in this story, you’ll have the Time of Your Life.
