Summary

When firemen are called to an intense blaze at the Grange in Melverley, they find the bodies of Christie Barton, her daughter, Adelaide, and father-in-law, William, along with evidence that suggests the fire was started deliberately.

Detective Inspector Alex Randall enlists the help of coroner Martha Gunn, but the puzzle deepens with a second house fire - the occupant, retired nurse Monica Deverill, is missing. Where is she, and what links the two fires? The answers lie in a secret buried in the past…

great plot..tedious writing<br />

This is the fourth book in the series. The plot is intriguing, but as with the previous episodes, the writing is formulaic and repetitive.
We have heard over and over that Martha doesn't trust Simon, that Alex is very secretive about his private life, that Jericho is inquisitive and protective of Martha's position.
The book is padded out with unnecessary repetition of points and questions.
Well read, however, by Patricia Gallimore. You can almost forget that she plays Pat Archer.
