When editor Susan Ryeland is given the manuscript of Alan Conway's latest novel, she has no reason to think it will be much different from any of his others

After working with the bestselling crime writer for years, she's intimately familiar with his detective, Atticus Pund, who solves mysteries disturbing sleepy English villages

An homage to queens of classic British crime such as Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers, Alan's traditional formula has proved hugely successful

So successful that Susan must continue to put up with his troubling behavior if she wants to keep her job.Conway's latest tale has Atticus Pund investigating a murder at Pye Hall, a local manor house

Yes, there are dead bodies and a host of intriguing suspects, but the more Susan reads, the more she's convinced that there is another story hidden in the pages of the manuscript one of real-life jealousy, greed, ruthless ambition, and murder..
