Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The Lodge of the Golden Windhorse has provided the citizens of Compton Dando with splendid fodder for gossip, prompting speculation of arcane rituals and bizarre sexual practices. But with the murder of the commune's leaders, the rumor-mill goes into overdrive. It's the most exciting thing to happen in Compton Dando since three boys burned down the bus shelter. In trying to solve those murders, Chief Inspector Barnaby is less excited than exasperated. The residents of the Windhorse commune may have been seeking the simple life, but they're all concealing complicated pasts - or past lives. As in Death of a Hollow Man, Graham is at her most gleeful when skewering the eccentricities of a closed community, and no one survives unscathed. Wonderfully funny . . . good plotting, judiciously dropped clues, and a luminescent turn of phrase - Kirkus Lively, shrewdly plotted, and wickedly funny . . . evokes the golden age of the traditional detective story - Orlando Sentinel
