Prescription for Murder

By Norman Robbins
October 2018

Not only does Dr. Richard Forth have a hectic work schedule and an awkward friendship with his ex-girlfriend, but his wife, Barbara, is constantly ill. With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara, and anyone else who gets in their way!

When Eric Dawson, a stranger, claims to have known Richard’s second fiancee (a woman Richard claims does not exist) Barbara’s health worsens and she isn’t the only one. With bad luck spreading almost as quickly as bad news, it seems somebody is out to kill Barbara, and anyone else who gets in their way!

The action takes place in the living-room of the Forth’s detached house in Bere Knighton, North Devon. Time - the present
