Who Knackered Aragorn's Catamite?

Story Summary

Set in Minas Tirith, Minas Ithil and Mordor, nearly 50 years after the Ringwars, Goswedriol, the bastard son of Gandalf, teams up with Goldberry to investigate the frightful murder of Morfindel, the King's Favourite and arch wheeler-dealer, treading on toes all the way. JRR Tolkien Meets James Bond and Agatha Christie. Crime thriller, whodunnit, bestseller, superficially satire, but with some angst & mystery, extends canon but avoids bending it. Canonical characters are faithfully portrayed (sic!) or fleshed-out.
