Review:

The people depicted here are real and believable and the drabness and genteel facade of Fifties England is skilfully brought to life. Taylor is, as always, adept at showing the reality beneath the surface, as the characters interact and the unsavoury truth behind the murder is gradually revealed (Sunday Telegraph)

'Excellent Lydmouth mysteries' Play

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 (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

What makes these novels transcend the average mystery is the author's uncanny ability to create another era so comprehensively that the reader is walking along the same pavements and driving the same cars (Independent)

Book Description:

The fifth in the acclaimed Lydmouth crime series, set on the Welsh/English border in the years after World War II
