Customer Review

on 13 March 2003
An outstanding work. Fans of Ruth Rendell know how she is the master of superbly plotted crime stories. In her alter-ego as Barbara Vine she is equally proficient at 'why dunnit's and this one gives the added question "what was done?". Martin Nanther attempts to construct a biography of his great-frandfather Henry, which starts throwing up some, at first, unanswerable questions as to his ancestor's behaviour. Simultaneously, Martin is having difficulties both with his marriage and with his current occupation as a herditary peer during the time of the parliamnetry reforms of 1999. Doesn't sound so interesting, does it? But it is. I couldn't put this book down. Get it and try for yourself.
