Lance Bradley, idling his life away in the little Somerset town of Glastonbury, suddenly receives a call for help from the eccentric sister of his old friend Rupert Alder. Rupe appears to have vanished without trace. Reluctantly, Lance goes to London, to discover that Rupe’s employers want him tried for fraud. A Japanese businessman claims he has stolen a document of huge importance. And a private detective is demanding money for trying to trace, on Rupe’s behalf, an American called Townley, who was involved in a mysterious death at Wilderness Farm, near Glastonbury, back in 1963.

No sooner has Lance decided that whatever Rupe was up to is too risky to get involved in than he finds that he already is involved, and the only way out is to get in deeper still. Where is Rupe? What is the document he has stolen? Who is Townley? And what happened at Wilderness Farm nearly thirty years before that holds the key to a secret more amazing than Lance Bradley could ever have imagined?

Dying to Tell is another classic Goddard mystery; intricate, fascinating, and deeply satisfying to the very last page.

    " Robert Goddard has instantly become one of my favourite writers! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Judy | 10/17/2013

    " Lots of characters, some with foreign names, and events from the past made this story a little confusing at times. I was waiting to find out the 'big secret' and wasn't sure whether the ending justified the wait. The storyline was good but I wish it had been written in a less muddled way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 10/17/2013

    " Thriller that kept me interested right up to the last page! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 10/14/2013

    " Kind of involved and weird. Takes you on a long journey, and at the end, you don't know if you appreciated it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharron | 9/12/2013

    " Good narrator but wow was this book way, way too long. It took Goddard eons to get to the meat of the story. I lost interest repeatedly and wonder why I stuck it out to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marc_c | 8/3/2013

    " This is a good read from beginning to end. Keeps to the Goddard style of bringing an historical event into a contemporary context. Possibly not the best of his I've read but it keeps twisting and turning to keep the reader wondering where it will all end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 5/8/2013

    " Listened to the audio book. An entertaining mystery. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 2/11/2013

    " The first Robert Goddard book I read was great and the second one but after a while you start to notice that his books all seem to follow the same patterns. This one was not very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arwen | 12/7/2012

    " Totally implausible but a good read for a rainy weekend! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Woollyworld | 11/28/2012

    " Good lord this couldn't have any more twists and impossible turns in it. Remember finishing this in the wee small hours of the morning as I just couldn't bear to put it down... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve | 9/28/2012

    " Somewhat entertaining, but the plot is as full of holes as a perforated holey thing. The entertainment came from finding the holes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rik | 8/27/2012

    " Maybe I've read too many of this authors books, the characters all seem the same, especially the protagonist. It was ok, though I've read better thrillers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hazel McHaffie | 8/24/2012

    " My least favourite Goddard to date. There's the usual suspense and historical mystery but I wasn't mesmerised by this one. Maybe it's because I'm all Goddarded out! Or because my mind's preoccupied with family concerns. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 4/13/2012

    " Intruiging! A must read! "

    " a real page turner.unputdownable. "
