Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On a bright autumn afternoon in Truro, the Napier family celebrates one couples golden wedding anniversary and anothers marriage. But for one member of the clan, the day turns dark. Chris Napier, prodigal son, suddenly spots the ragged specter of a former friend, Nicky Lanyon—a man whose own family was ruined by the same twist of fate with which the Napiers were blessed. And the next morning, Chris is horrified to find Nicky dead, hanging from a tree where the boys once played….

For Chris, the suicide opens a floodgate of doubt and suspicion. How did his familys wealth slip out of the hands of a great-uncle, brutally murdered before he could change his will? Were the men convicted of the crime truly guilty? And who is the mysterious, seductive woman who claims to know the Napiers darkest secrets? As the crimes of two families are exposed, a series of violent acts shadows him and suddenly Chris knows hes in uncharted waters…until a killer drops one last disguise—for the ultimate act of revenge.

Synopsis:

At a wedding party in Cornwall in the summer of 1981, Chirs Napier is shocked to recognise a dishevelled intruder as his childhood friend Nicky Lanyon, whom he has not seen since his father, Michael Lanyon, was hanged for the murder of Chris's great uncle, Joshua Carnoweth, in 1947.

It was the simple inheritance of old Joshua's fortune that led the then humble Napier family to their present state of affluence. When Nicky subsequently hangs himself, Chris sets out on a journey into his own and others' memories of the tragic events of 34 years before. Driven on by Nicky's firm belief in his father's innocence, Chris begins to doubt the official version of those events and to question the conduct of several members of his own family.

Then other present-day mysteries begin to dog his footsteps into the past and soon his search for the truth becomes a desperate struggle for his own survival.

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

A carefully crafted tale, "Beyond Recall" interweaves present and past as Christian Napier sets out to discover the truth behind his great-uncle's murder, committed during the days of rationing and privation following the Second World War.
