‘Robert Barnard is always original, never repeats himself and has a delectable wit’ Jessica Mann, Daily Telegraph
It began with the body of a young man, almost naked, in the car park behind one of Haworth’s many eating establishments. It was his identity that was the first puzzle for Charlie Peace and his superior, Detective Superintendent Oddie. But before long the puzzle that most concerned them was the nature of the close-knit artistic community where Declan O’Hearn had acted as odd-job boy. The little knot of people seemed to have been brought together less by ability as painters than by a common worship of the distinguished painter Ranulph Byatt, who has not only brought them together but seems to prefer the adulation of his inferiors to the judgement of his equals. It is not long before Charlie starts to wonder if there isn’t a sinister reason for this. And as the search for the killer gathers pace, Peace and Oddie uncover a series of dark secrets on the harsh Haworth landscape.
Atmospheric, witty and perceptive, The Corpse at the Haworth Tandoori is vintage Robert Barnard.
