(From the publisher):
A perfect pair of crimes...
When Louis Stevenson is found guilty of murder, he leaves the dock loudly proclaiming his innocence. And he delivers, too, a chilling invitation to the four men responsible for his conviction: "You four, I summon to meet me at the time appointed, at the Assize of the Dying."
The meaning of the sinister words becomes clear almost immediately with two unexpected deaths. And a young couple, convinced that an innocent man has been wrongly condemned, determine to unmask the real murderer - before he strikes again.
Murder is committed, too, in Aunt Helen, a story of blind obsession and psychological suspense that starts with what looks suspiciously like the perfect crime....
Two vintage tales of murder most foul from the bestselling pen of Ellis Peters.
