Descrizione dell’editore

From the Golden Age mystery author comes “a richly detailed and entertaining romp, with a fascinating resolution and an unconventional and winning sleuth” (Chicago Tribune).
 
Albert Campion heads to Cambridge as a favor to a friend, whose fiancée is employed by the elderly Faraday family, to investigate the disappearance of her uncle Andrew. What the self-proclaimed “Deputy-Adventurer” finds is foul play of the most heinous kind: murder.
 
Andrew is found floating in a river, bound and shot in the head. Needless to say, in a household of unlikable characters—presided over by an authoritarian widow—he’s not sorely missed. But fear has pervaded the dour family, bringing up decades of suppressed hatreds, petty jealousies, and nasty impulses—all of which lead to a second shocking killing. As the number of Faradays dwindle, so should the number of suspects. But Campion discovers that in a family this dysfunctional, it’s hard to stop what hatred has set in motion.
