Autopsy, bumper cars

Harker #8 & #9, by Roger Gibson & Vince Danks

So now I have bought up all the back issues of this British crime title, so I am slap bang up to date. This story is about a murder mystery writer who was murdered in Whitby at a murder mystery weekend. Kerr-aaaazy cop DCI Harker finds himself sucked into the investigation, together with his sidekick Critchley and his London pathologist, who have all been despatched up north in a somewhat unlikely fashion. More people start dying, stereotypical mocking of the local plod takes place, and so on. It is not big and clever, but it is somewhat entertaining, and I like seeing the illustrations of the Whitby locations.
