Series: Richard Jury
(From the publisher):
When a young woman is found dead, Richard Jury is convinced her death was not an accident.
Delving into her background, Jury uncovers unlikely links between the local children's home, a run-down pub, the Jerusalem Inn, and a socially elite house-party gathering beneath the stately roof of Spinney Abbey.
Among the guests assembling for Christmas are a highly reluctant Melrose Plant and his rapacious Aunt Agatha, intent on getting the most out of everything - and everyone - during her Christmas visitation. But the discovery of a body in the snow puts an abrupt end to the festive spirit.
Only the murderer, it seems, has not finished playing out his or her game - and Jury and Melrose Plant find themselves stalking a killer for whom Christmas is no time of goodwill...
