Jonathan Cape, 2008
Britten and his 'unconventional' partner, Brulightly, take on the case of suicide Berni Kudos. At least, suicide was the official verdict. His fiance, Charlotte Maughton, believes his death was something more sinister.Blackmail, revenge, murder: desperate acts are exposed, and this is no tree-lined avenue to justice. Each new revelation stirs the muddy waters of a family's dark secrets, and each fresh twist takes them further from that elusive redemption.There are murder mysteries and there are murder mysteries, but this is a noir where nothing is black and white.
The illustrations are in muted shades, mainly black, brown and green.
Condition: as new.
