'one of the best crime novels to take on holiday' – The Times

'Undertaker and antiquarian bookseller Anthony Sparrow is an unlikely detective. The format is unconventional but skilfully handled, the varied collection of documents shedding light on the complex psychologies of killer and victim, while still allowing Sparrow to exercise his grey matter and bring it to a satisfying conclusion' – Alastair Mabbott, Herald

'A tense new thriller' – Scottish Field

'Full of twists and turns in all the right places, likely to appeal to many for its slow-build tension' – Dundee Courier

'This is a book that stands out from the crowd for all the right reasons. It's a book that makes you think, a book that causes you to re-examine easy assumptions and preconceived ideas. It's certainly a book that we would strongly recommend' – Undiscovered Scotland

'An elegantly engaging novel of detection. …With each narrative strand brimming with revelation and finely observed persona detail, this is a sharp and suspenseful mystery' – Joanne Owen, LoveReading

After the death of leading haematologist Professor Anstruther, antiquarian book dealer Anthony Sparrow is tasked with clearing out his mansion of its books and papers. He soon begins to question the real circumstances of the old man’s death: was he in fact murdered, and if so, who was responsible?

The answer might be found in the personal diaries and letters which Sparrow unearths. But as he closes in on the answer, the perspective suddenly shifts and everything which he was sure about dissolves into darkness and shadows.

Gillian Galbraith was an advocate specialising in medical negligence and agricultural law cases for seventeen years. She also worked for a time as an agony aunt in teenagers’ magazines. Since then, she has been the legal correspondent for the Scottish Farmer and has written on legal matters for The Times.
