A novel by

 
 
Richard Patton has received a letter. The sender has been murdered...

The young woman's death is distressing, to say the least. Marked by a series of pranks, her death is not taken seriously.

The death leaves behind a disturbing chain of events.

Patton's past colleagues are involved. There is clearly something missing... something nobody wants to get out.

This mystery needs to be investigated, and Patton is the only one who seems to be interested in solving the case.

But his presence there is resented, old enmities are aroused, and what Patton uncovers inadvertently brings his wife Amelia into very real danger. Can he save Amelia or will the case come first?

Patton soon realises that only one event can free him from the web in which he is caught... and he fully intends to use it.

Guilt on the Lily is a riveting murder mystery that questions loyalty, friendship, and motive.

Praise for Roger Ormerod:



"Eclectic, underrated Ormerod can be relied upon to come up with the startling goods" -Sunday Times

"I am glad to announce that the detective novel is still alive and well in Mr Ormerod's skillful hands" -The Spectator

"Fast-moving, with well-orchestrated jiggery-pokery; not unlike an early Dick Francis in tone and method" - Times Literary Supplement


Roger Ormerod(1920-2005) was a prolific writer of ingenious and densely plotted crime novels - some 35 in all - which were published in the UK and the USA. He lived in Wolverhampton and amongst other things worked as a civil servant and as a Social Security inspector - backgrounds which he made full use of in his fiction, as he did with his hobbies of painting and photography.
