He had parked his car close to Derbyshire's Mapperley Reservoir in Shipley Country Park and let his Jack Russell terrier out of the back of the vehicle, watching her disappear on one of her customary forages around Shipley Lane. Having seen the dog stop abruptly, sniffing the air, ears erect, he was surprised when she vanished into the trees to the right, instead of following their customary course left, and up to the wooded area encompassing the remains of what had been the Miller-Mundy estate. "WHERE'S the body?" DS Fletcher crushed the stub of the cigarette beneath his shoe after the disapproving look from one of the
