The wealthy and reclusive Harry Quirke, misanthropist and student of the piano works of Alkan, is stabbed to death in his country house outside Tadcaster. Only one of the obvious suspects seems to have much of a motive: his alibi is shaky, it is true, but there is no proof of his involvement. DI Moat and his assistant DS Stockwell follow one false lead after another in an exasperating investigation that seems to be getting nowhere: a gypsy caravan, an old murder in Kansas, the hurried will of a dying man, a golf-course green and an unfinished catalogue of Alkan’s works – none of it seems to make sense. Finally, the murderer makes the smallest of slips, and the penny drops - but it’s a close thing!
Author Julius Falconer says “In all my books, I aim to entertain, intrigue, inform and tease. I draw the reader into the murky world of human motivation and evil, exposing the extent to which some will go to achieve their ends, however slight those ends might sometimes appear to the onlooker. I challenge the reader to identify the murderer before the detectives do by spotting the mistake in which guilt is revealed. Inspector Moat will take his place as one of the nation’s favourite literary detectives.”
