Description

Love and need make unexpected bedfellows, and both are blind.

As the grip of a long hard winter tightens on Lydmouth, a dead woman calls the dying in a seance behind net curtains.

Two provincial newspapers are in the throes of a bitter circulation war.

A lorry-driver broods, and an office boy loses his heart.

Britain is basking in the warm glow of post-war tranquillity, but in the quiet town of Lydmouth, darker forces are at play.

The rats are fed on bread and milk, a gentleman's yellow kid glove is mislaid on a train, and something disgusting is happening at Mr Prout's toyshop.

Returning to a town shrouded in intrigue and suspicion, Jill Francis becomes acting editor of the Gazette.

Meanwhile, there's no pleasure left in the life of Detective Chief Inspector Richard Thornhill.

Only a corpse, a television set and the promise of trouble to come.

One of the most boring books I've ever had the misfortune of reading. My book group hated it too. If you like excitement, this isn't for you. We refer to this book as 'the one with the yellow glove' as the appearance of a glove was the most thrilling it got.

Good to be back in Lydmouth with things moving on. I'd thought that this book might draw the curtain on this series but I think that a whole new act has just begun.
