First edition. Signed by the author. As new, unread copy in fine dust jacket. July 1983, Essex. Fox Farm is, thanks to two corpses, neither picturesque nor peaceful. The body in its kitchen belongs to prominent historian Christopher Cliff, who has taken his own life with an antique shotgun. The second, found on the property boundary, remains unidentified. DI Nick Lowry is already under pressure: County Chief Merrydown was at college with Cliff and knows the family. Lowry must enlist colleagues Daniel Kenton and Jane Gabriel to answer two key questions: who was at the house with Cliff that morning, and what has since happened to Cliff's wife?
