Writer Kate Ivory has new neighbours on either side of her terraced house. On one side lives Jeremy Wells, a diffident, charming Oxford academic. On the other live Laura and Edward Foster who are intent on enjoying every moment of their retirement. None of them seems likely to become embroiled in serious crime, nor to be its victim. But within a few weeks, Kate is answering questions by the police about a brutal murder on her own doorstep.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is Stallwood's best yet: the plot is elegant, the characters beautifullly imagined and the mystery well sustained * Good Book Guide *

OXFORD SHADOWS:
'Stallwood's speciality is adroit plotting set in a vividly realised Oxford locale, and this is vintage stuff' The Times
`Stallwood delves into chilling psychology' Independent


OXFORD SHIFT:
'Gives Colin Dexter a run for his money among the dreaming spires... Stallwood has fought her way to the top of the tree in British crime writing with some arrestingly written thrillers' The Times


THE RAINBOW SIGN:
'A haunting and atmospheric piece...Stallwood has fought her way to the top of the tree in British crime writing with some arrestingly writen thrillers' The Times
'Veronica Stallwood has come up with another first-class page-turner' Oxford Mail
'The Rainbow Sign is a thriller that can't be faulted... Breath-taking descriptions of a desert country eclipsed only by Stallwood's insight into people's minds. The plot, sensed rather than seen, unfolds page by page, alluring and tantalising' Shots
'An elegiac mystery' Scotsman
'A breakthrough novel...A deceptive and atmospheric tale of British crime' Time Out
