A letter from a vicar in Norfolk leads DDI Hardcastle and DS Marriott on the road to a shocking and macabre discovery . . .

One rainy morning in March 1927, Divisional Detective Inspector Ernest Hardcastle of the Metropolitan Police is summoned to the office of the Chief Constable CID at New Scotland Yard. Frederick Wensley has received a letter from a Reverend Percy Stoner in Norfolk, convinced that his nephew, Captain Guy Stoner, has been murdered. He recently received a letter, supposedly from Guy, claiming that there had been a fire at his farm in Ditton, Surrey, and asking for money. Assigned the case, Hardcastle and Detective Sergeant Charles Marriott travel to Ditton, where they make a shocking discovery, and are soon drawn into a shady world of deception, fraud, ex-army officers and West End nightclubs, navigating a labyrinth of twists and turns in their determination to see justice served.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Another strong entry in a consistently fine series * Booklist *
Entertaining . Readers will hope Hardcastle has a long career * Publishers Weekly *
. . .engaging, as always, and a good choice for fans of Charles Todd's two series set in the WWI era, one starring Bess Crawford and the other,Ian Rutledge * Booklist on Hardcastle's Runaway *
a vividly evoked early twentieth-century setting, a meaty plot, plenty of twists, a surprise ending, and-presiding over it all-the cantankerous Hardcastle. Inspector Morse fans might find Hardcastle to be a kindred spirit, if less pompous * Booklist on Hardcastle's Collector *
Cleverly plotted mystery, awash with appealing historical details. Another surefire winner for fans of the irascible Hardcastle and the long-suffering Marriott * Booklist on Hardcastle's Quartet *
