A Little Death

(1999)
A novel by

 
 
Nominated for the Crime Writers' Association Ellis Peters Historical Dagger Award They lie, three elderly recluses shot to death, in a musty 1950s London town house crammed with hoarded belongings. When the death scene yields no clues, the police conclude that one of the victims shot the others before committing suicide. But which one? And why? Georgina Gresham, maverick and manipulative, a former society beauty, prime suspect in her husband's notorious murder thirty years before? Her brother, Edmund, her lifelong confidant? Or Ada, their housekeeper, salty, shrewd, and long-suffering?

Buried in the trio's youth is the fatal seed whose dark tendrils overlaid Victorian country summers, the Great War, the Roaring Twenties...and all the cravings and fantasies and twists of fate that would chain them to each other in life...and in one explosive moment of violent death.
