Hemlock Row

(The third book in the Lancefield Murder Mystery series)
A novel by

In the third instalment of this classic British crime series, the return of an old friend and the arrival of a new cousin spell yet more danger for the Lancefield family of Penwithen.

Five months have passed since revenge led to murder at Salvation Hall, home of the reclusive Lancefield family, and no one – least of all the victim’s family – expected to see the killer walk free. So, when news of the unwelcome verdict reaches the Cornish village of Penwithen, DCI Ennor Price can only brace himself and wait for the fallout.

Five hundred miles away in Edinburgh, the discovery of a young woman’s body behind an elegant Georgian town house looks like a murder without a motive to DCI Alyson Grant, until the chance sighting of a van leaving the crime scene offers her the slimmest of slim possibilities. But when that van turns up in Cornwall, and Grant asks Price for help to trace the driver, she isn’t prepared for his response.

Because Price doesn’t agree that the murder lacked a motive, any more than he thinks that the murderer will stop at one victim.

But is he right to think he can draw out the killer without overplaying his hand? Or will he risk unleashing a tragedy from which the Lancefield family – and Price himself – might never recover?
