When squatters occupy a disused military camp near Lydmouth, public opinion is divided: do they really need shelter or are they merely unpatriotic scroungers and Communist sympathisers

When a man is found murdered in the Bathurst Arms, Detective Inspector Richard Thornhill has no shortage of suspects. One of them is Philip Wemyss-Brown, editor of the Lydmouth Gazette - and friend and employer of Jill Francis.

Once again, Jill and Richard pursue the same answers for conflicting reasons. This time, however, they have a second problem to solve, and this one is even more personal . . .

Industry Reviews

'Taylor is an excellent writer' [The Times]

'How skilfully he recreates the atmosphere of the time through innuendo, attitude and detail rather than dogged description... Taylor is the master of small lives writ large and, in the phrase coined in this era of surly pubs and poor food, he has carved a classic detective story which is deceptively calm and cool, but really smashing' [Frances Fyfield, Express]

''The latest of Andrew Taylor's Lydmouth series of books, in which he has so effectively created the atmosphere of the 1950s, with its genteel drabness and carefully preserved hierarchy of relationships . . . Is another satisfying read, in which the characters are as important as the events and tension develops naturally without contrivance.' [Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph]

'Marvellously creepy' [Frances Fyfield, Mail on Sunday]
