Riassunto: 'Saturated in rural atmosphere, rich in ironies that enter the soul...neat and authentic' - SUNDAY TIMES 'Subtle and intriguing' - OXFORD TIMES Tudor England, 1530: The town of Castleacre, Norfolk, ancestral home of the Ackland family, is dependent upon the great Cluniac Priory that overshadows it. When Will Ackland, younger son of an impoverished gentleman, returns home after years abroad he finds his evil-tempered brother Gilbert cursing the Prior's new bailiff for his exactions. Then a corpse is discovered, not only stabbed but mutilated beyond recognition. Is it the Prior's bailiff? If so, Gilbert is the chief suspect. But Will discovers that the bailiff had other enemies, and he begins to unravel a tangle of concealed passion that leaves more than one man dead.
About the Author:
Sheila Radley is the pseudonym of Sheila Robinson, who was born and brought up in rural Northamptonshire, one of the fortunate means-tested generation whose further education was free. She went from her village school via high school to London University, where she read history.
She served for nine years as an education officer in the Women's Royal Air Force, then worked variously as a teacher, a clerk in a shoe factory, a civil servant and in advertising. In the 1960s she opted out of conventional work and joined her partner in running a Norfolk village store and post office, where she began writing fiction in her spare time. Her first books, written as Hester Rowan, were three romantic novels; she then took to crime, and wrote 10 crime novels as Sheila Radley.
