A Guilty Thing Surprised

£4.99

Product description

It is the sequel to feature the classic crime-solving detective, Chief Inspector Wexford.

From the description at the back of the book:
"The Nightingales were always a happy couple. If a husband and wife never discuss anything but the weather, are waited on hand and foot, are childless and physically cold, what is there to quarrel about?
But someone had reason to quarrel with Elizabeth. Someone who was alone with her in the woods that dark September night. Someone who either loved her or hated her enough to beat her head in until she was dead.
The Nightingale case seemed straightforward enough on the surface. But Detective Chief Inspector Wexford soon discovered that beneath the placid surface of the Nightingales' lives there were undercurrents and secrets no one had ever suspected..."

Sunday Telegraph said about this book, 'The inspiration never seems to flag and the quality of the craftsmanship remains as high as ever'

The condition of the book is good but the cover is ever so slightly worn at the edges, the book's spine is rather curved from previous use and there is writing in pen on the inside of the front cover.
