(From the publisher):
Paul's Court is a quiet corner in the heart of the city: an oasis of peace and safety - until the night when there are two violent deaths. Willy Goppel, an émigré from Germany, is found hanging from a beam in his home; and fifteen-year-old Yvette Cole, who may or may not have lived up to her wild reputation, is strangled and thrown half-naked over the churchyard hedge.
Chief Superintendent Wycliffe has the aid of a shrewd local sergeant, Kersey, but they still find this a difficult case to crack. Did Willy assault the girl and then hang himself? Or was his death not suicide after all?
As Wycliffe and Kersey dig deeper, they gradually untangle a complex network of secrets in the quiet of Paul's Court...
