Summary

Summary

A man and a young woman are found blasted away by a rifle in a remote farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors. But where is the farmer, why did he have such swanky furniture in his living room, and who on earth are the victims? Charlie Woodend isn't amused with the people who are getting under his feet as he starts to grapple with these questions, but his steps are abruptly halted when the Deputy Chief Constable decides that, this time, Woodend's high-handedness has gone too far. Woodend may have been suspended but his sense of justice can't let go. And it won't let go however much resistance he encounters and from whom. But as Woodend is depressed to discover, when the people who are determined to keep you down are all-powerful, sheer will-power just isn't enough.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Chief Inspector Woodend tackles a classic "locked-room" double-murder case in Death of an Innocent, by Sally Spencer (The Golden Mile to Murder; Forecasts, July 16, 2001). How did the killer manage to get away when the crime scene, an isolated farmhouse, was surrounded by fresh snow? (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

Policeman Charlie Woodend investigates a double mutilation murder in an isolated-but oddly posh-Yorkshire farmhouse whose owner has disappeared across a pristine blanket of snow. Woodend's higher-ups unexpectedly remove him from the case, and trumped-up charges appear from nowhere, so he determines to solve the case on his own. Superior work from a best-selling British author (The Red Herring). (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
