Description
The last thing you need when you're on holiday is to become involved in a murder—unless you're George Gently, in which case it is business as usual. In this debut mystery of the series, the Chief Inspector's Easter break in Norchester is rudely interrupted when a local timber merchant is found dead. His son, with whom he had been seen arguing, immediately becomes the prime suspect, although Gently is far from convinced of his guilt. The Norchester City Police gratefully accept Gently's offer to help investigate the murder, but he soon clashes with Inspector Hansom, the officer in charge of the case, whose idea of conclusive evidence appalls Gently almost as much as his own thorough, methodical style of investigation exasperates Hansom. The inspiration for the popular BBC television series starring Martin Shaw, the George Gently mysteries are the creation of antiquarian bookseller Alan Hunter, who wrote 46 novels in the series—beginning with this one in 1955. A police inspector in East Anglia, the incorruptible Gently is not one to assume that matters are as they seem, and Hunter keeps the dialogue crisp and the pace crackling.
