9780099534846: A Guilty Thing Surprised (Wexford)

The Nightingales were always a very happy couple. If a husband and wife never discuss anything but the weather and are waited on hand and foot, what is there to quarrel about? But someone had reason to quarrel with Elizabeth. Someone who was alone with her in the woods that dark September night. Someone who loved her or hated her enough to beat her to death. The case seemed straightforward enough, but Wexford soon discovered that beneath the placid exterior of the Nightingales’ lives, there were undercurrents and secrets no one had ever suspected.

From the Inside Flap:

Elizabeth Nightingale found peace and tranquility on her nightly walks through the rich, dense forests surrounding Myfleet Manor. But the peace she treasured was shattered one night when she found death waiting in the woods. Chief Inspector Wexford and his colleague Inspector Burden find a most unsavory case on their hands -- and must use all their wit and wisdom to solve it . . .
