Abstract:

When a widower with a distinguished war record is found dead in his summerhouse with a bottle of whisky beside him, the verdict is suicide. But Inspector Richard Thornhill and his lover, reporter Jill Francis, soon realize there's far more to it than that. The widower's death touches many lives. The investigation leads to a moderately famous artist and his wife. To Thornhill's former boss, retired and loathing it. To a charwoman and an army officer. To a councillor with more pies than fingers to put in them. To a dilettante magazine proprietor and an unmarried mother. Worst of all, to Thornhill's growing horror, the investigation leads to his wife, Edith, and to another death during a highly charged summer before the war. But a third death is yet to come.
