Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When the quiet Little Vestry of St. Matthew's Church becomes the blood-soaked scene of a double murder, Scotland Yard Commander Adam Dalgliesh faces an intriguing conundrum: How did an upper-crust Minister come to lie, slit throat to slit throat, next to a neighborhood derelict of the lowest order? Challenged with the investigation of a crime that appears to have endless motives, Dalgliesh explores the sinister web spun around a half-burnt diary and a violet-eyed widow who is pregnant and full of malice--all the while hoping to fill the gap of logic that joined these two disparate men in bright red death. . . .

Synopsis:

Commander Adam Dalgliesh investigates the throat-slashing murders, in London's St. Matthew's church, of Sir Paul Berowne, a former Minister of State, and a tramp named Harry Mack, gruesome killings that lead Dalgliesh along a most unusual trail in search of a murderer. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
