So how could Julius Partridge, eminent scholar and author, apparently fall from the lethal rocky outcrop in the woods behind his cottage? And why should everyone in the sleepy, time-forgotten village of Bellenden assume his volatile wife, Elaine, is responsible? Journalist Tom Brackenbury, on compassionate leave after his wife's violent death, is drawn into solving what develops into a series of unnatural coincidences -- and two more killings. A mistrusted outsider, Tom uncovers layer upon layer of deceit and quickly discovers that nothing -- and no one -- is as it seems. Then Tom meets Dora, and grasps at a second chance of happiness. They head for a honeymoon in the Scottish Highlands, only to find themselves embroiled in a centuries-old feud between rival clans -- again with murderous results. Expertly weaving suspicion and counter-suspicion in a web of intrigue, Pamela Hill cleverly reveals the truth behind so-called 'respectable' society in this tale of classic romance and suspense.on a credit card.
