When Mattie Harris's body is found drowned in the river, everyone in Lydmouth knows something is wrong. Mattie wasn't a swimmer - it can't have been a simple accident. She was drunk on the last night of her life - could she have fallen in? Or was she pushed? Mattie was a waitress, of no importance at all, so when Lydmouth's most prominent citizens become very anxious to establish that her death was accidental, Jill Francis's suspicions become roused. In the meantime she is becoming ever closer to Inspector Richard Thornhill, and discovering that the living have as many secrets as the dead...

Review:

'Excellent Lydmouth mysteries' Play

'Andrew Taylor is a writer who constantly surprises' - Spectator (Spectator)

How skilfully he recreates the atmosphere of the time through innuendo, attitude and detail rather than dogged description . . .Taylor is the master of small lives writ large and, in the phrase coined in this era of surly pubs and poor food, he has carved a classic detective story which is deceptively calm and cool, but really smashing (Frances Fyfield, Express (on THE SUFFOCATING NIGHT)

'He writes terribly well' Glasgow Evening Times

Taylor is an excellent writer (The Times)

'Does full justice to Andrew Taylor's reputation as on of the greatest award winning crime writers of our time' Bangor Chronicle

The conclusion is surprising

Deft, stylish and very entertaining novel ... a cut above the rest (Sherlock Holmes)

Book Description:

Fifth intriguing crime thriller in Andrew Taylor's highly acclaimed 1950s Lydmouth mystery series
