Product Description:

Chicago, 1931. Asta Eicher, a lonely widow with three children begins to receive seductive letters from a man named Harry Powers, who promises to marry her and to care for her and her children. Asta agrees to go with him to West Virginia to see his house there, and then to bring her children. Weeks later, all are dead.

Emily Thornhill, one of the few women in the Chicago press, is sent to cover the case. Trying to understand what lies behind the tragedy of this family, she is drawn deeper and deeper into the case and becomes determined to make sure that Powers is convicted.

Review:

"Superb... A brilliant, beautiful novel" ( Sunday Times)

"In a brilliant fusion of fact and fiction, Jayne Anne Phillips has written the novel of the year… A compulsively readable story" ( Stephen King)

"Absorbing and captivating." (Mark Lawson Guardian)

"A powerful and moving novel." (Jonathan Gibbs Independent)

" Quiet Dell has all the elements of a murder mystery, but its emotional scope is larger and more complex. It combines a strange hypnotic and poetic power with the sharp tones of documentary evidence. It offers a portrait of rural America in a time of crisis and dramatises the lives of a number of characters who are fascinating and memorable." (Colm Tóibín)

"An extraordinary book – the best she has written." (Kate Kellaway Observer)
