Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

At Cambridge in the 1960s, poet Lydia Brooke becomes obsessed with her namesake, the Edwardian poet Rupert Brooke, reenacting with her friends the nature-worshiping frolics of that more innocent era — but with disastrous consequences. When the talented and tormented Lydia dies more than 20 years later, after a prior suicide attempt, it is assumed that she has taken her own life.

Now obsession has taken hold of Victoria McClellan. A feminist biographer at Cambridge, Vic finds herself immersed in the poet's world. Uneasy about the manner of Lydia's death, Vic calls on her ex-husband, Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid, for help. But before he can take action, Vic herself is dead — and there's no question that this one is murder.

As Kincaid and his lover and partner, Gemma James, investigate, they are exposed to secrets that have reached out over three decades and poisoned a dozen lives. In a complex tale whose emotional intensity can be compared with that of Elizabeth George, Deborah Crombie shows how an attempt by women to claim their power can be dangerous — even fatal.
