9780007334773: Death of a Dormouse

'So far out in front that he need not bother looking over his shoulder' Sunday Telegraph When policemen remove their hats, they do not bring good news. The bare-headed policeman on Trudi Adamson's doorstep brought the worst news possible -- her husband Trent has been burned to death in a freak car accident. Suddenly a widow after years of marriage, Trudi finds herself alone, unprovided for and increasingly aware of her ignorance of her late husband's world. Why had he resigned from his job without telling her? Were was all his money? And more terrifying still: is he really dead? As shock piles upon shock, Trudi is forced to re-examine her belief in Trent, and ultimately in herself. Compelled to leave the cosy nest of her old life, she is out in the open and fighting for her very survival...

About the Author:

Reginald Hill was brought up in Cumbria, and has returned there after many years in Yorkshire. With his first crime novel, A Clubbable Woman, he was hailed as 'the crime novel's best hope' and twenty years on he has more than fulfilled that prophecy.

From AudioFile:

Every once in awhile, Reginald Hill takes a break from his excellent series about Yorkshire policemen Dalziel and Pascoe to produce a different kind of mystery. Because it's Hill, the result is great, and because it's narrated by Di Langford, the audiobook version is also great. When we meet Trudi Adamson, the dormouse of the title, she's just learning of the death of her husband. As she works though the shock, it becomes clear that Trudi's husband was not who he seemed to be. Langford never misses a beat. Her clear narrative never loses us in the Hitchcockian plot. Trudi's voice changes as her personality evolves, and characters as varying as a Welsh baudy-girl and a Swiss policeman spring vividly into the air. One is left wishing for a Langford-Hill sequel. A.C.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
