(From the publisher):
The Lincolnshire fens are the setting for Superintendent Richard Jury's latest case. This landscape is one that can easily deceive, volunteering nothing - much like the locals of the only pub for miles around, the Case Has Altered
There's been a double murder. The body of one woman is found on the Wash; another woman lies floating in a canal in Windy Fen. Both are connected with the manor house, Fengate: Dorcas Reese was a servant there; Verna Dunn was the louche ex-wife of the owner, Max Owen - a man with a passion for antiques. So when the principal suspect turns out to be Jenny Kennington, a woman Jury has long loved,he decides he needs someone inside Fengate. Someone who can impersonate an antiques expert. Who better than aristocratic Melrose Plant, detective manqué?
