Abstract:

When the wife of a prominent QC is found dead at the bottom of a well, Inspector Thanet discounts accidental death. Virginia Mintar was no angel - her outrageous flirting knew no bounds and made her many enemies. On the night of her death she was surrounded by a group of people, many of whom had reason and opportunity to kill her. But which one took that final step? Who wanted her dead and gone? Thanet and his partner Mike Lineham find their investigation hampered by a morass of family secrets. Who was Virginia's current lover? And what could her mother-in-law possibly have to hide? Add the Mintar's daughters to the equation - the elder has been missing for four years and the younger is engaged to a womanising tennis coach - and Thanet soon realises that the further he digs, the more complicated this case is going to become.
