DEATH of a FORGOTTEN MAN Many of the older people of Thornhill had known Charlie Bennett. He’d been born there, grown up and married in the town. Then, following the scandal of him leaving his wife and daughter to move south with a younger woman, and even his closest friends had lost touch with him over the years. So why had Charlie returned and what was he doing staying at a B &B on the very night there was a fire there? A freezing winter’s evening and only the young were out either attending the rave in a barn just outside of the town or watching the show, from a group of Chippendale-style male strippers, at the theatre. What was the connection between a drug’s dealer , a computer disk, the murder of a woman, the group calling themselves The Gorgeous Hunks and the death of a man long forgotten?
