Summary

When Kirsten Harbourn is found strangled on her wedding day, DI Wesley Peterson makes some alarming discoveries. 

Kirsten was being pursued by a stalker, and she had dark secrets her fiancé knew nothing about. But Kirsten's wasn't the only wedding planned to take place that day. At Morbay register office a terrified young girl makes her wedding vows, but a few days later her bridegroom is found dead. Wesley suspects that his death and his bride's subsequent disappearance might be linked to Kirsten's murder. Meanwhile a skeleton is found buried in a farmer's field - a field that once belonged to the family of an Elizabethan playwright. Is his bloodthirsty play, The Fair Wife of Padua, a confession to murder?

thrilling

i found this book particularly thrilling, although i guessed the bady early on it did not distract from the story, the social side of the story also moved on at an interesting rate
