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…
