(From the publisher):
The bookshop owned by the Glynn family - New, Second-hand, and Rare Books: established 1886 - was old, charming, and well-run. So when Matthew Glynn was found bludgeoned and strangled in his bookshop office, it was doubly shocking, for who could have done such a thing to one of Penzance's most respected families?
But Superintendent Wycliffe found that the Glynns, like many families, were not what they appeared to be. Between the three brothers, Alfred, Maurice, and Matthew, were feelings of bitterness and resentment rooted in old quarrels - and now Matthew was dead, and before very long yet another Glynn was to die.
Wycliffe, trying to unravel the murky secrets of the past, began to suspect that Sara Glynn, the reserved sister of the warring brothers, knew more than she pretended - and he had to persuade her to tell all she knew before another took place.
