Review by riverwillow
A strong mystery which really gets under your skin. Someone is killing the inhabitants of Wychwood and only Miss Pinkerton suspects who. She tells Luke Fitzwilliam of her suspicions on a train journey, and telles who she thinks will be next. When she is later killed and Luke reads of the death of her suspected next victim, Luke travels to Wychwood to investigate. There is a romantic element which is contrived and unconvincing, but this is still a satisfying read.
