Summary

Summary

The horizon doesn't always mark the end of the road. . . When Francis Armstrong moves into his fussily designed Victorian house in the heart of the Vale of York, his August stretches before him in a haze of leisurely house refurbishments. His decision to move a pile of rubble, however, brings DCI Hennessey and Sergeant Yellich springing to the scene at the double. The woman's skeleton they study alongside Louise D'Acre, the lovely pathologist, points the finger of blame firmly and soon all the roads of evidence are leading in one direction. But once that destination is reached, the road continues onwards beyond that point, to a doorstep that makes no attempt to conceal its horrific crimes, but brags of them.

Booklist Review

Francis Armstrong has just bought a house in Yorkshire and is clearing the yard when he makes a grisly discovery: a human skull buried beneath a pile of rubble. The remains are identified as those of Muriel Bradbury, wife of the house's former owner. Mrs. Bradbury was reported missing nearly 20 years earlier, and although her husband was suspected of killing her, he was never charged. Shortly after his wife's disappearance, Bradbury married his young secretary, although the marriage didn't last. Yorkshire detectives Hennessy and Yellich take the case, but their initial certainty that Bradbury killed his wife evaporates when they learn that two other wives also disappeared shortly before their husbands took up with a woman whose description matches Bradbury's second wife, Sandra Picardie. The latest entry in Turnbull's popular series is one of the best yet and will please readers who like intelligent detectives and atmospheric British settings. --Emily Melton Copyright 2003 Booklist
