Adam Dalgliesh takes on a baffling murder in the rarefied
world of London book publishing in this masterful mystery.
Commander Adam Dalgliesh and his team are confronted with a
puzzle of impenetrable complexity. A murder has taken place in the offices of
the Peverell Press, a venerable London publishing house located in a dramatic
mock-Venetian palace on the Thames. The victim is Gerard Etienne, the brilliant
but ruthless new managing director, who had vowed to restore the firm’s
fortunes. Etienne was clearly a man with enemies—a discarded mistress, a
rejected and humiliated author, and rebellious colleagues, one of whom
apparently killed herself a short time earlier. Yet Etienne’s death, which
occurred under bizarre circumstances, is for Dalgliesh only the beginning of
the mystery, as he desperately pursues the search for a killer prepared to
strike and strike again. Download and start listening now!
