1963. It was the year of the Profumo Scandal, the Great Train Robbery, the Kennedy Assassination...and the Mickledore Hall Murder. The guests at the hall that weekend had included a Tory minister, a CIA officer specializing in dirty tricks, a British diplomat with royal connections, and Cissy Kohler, a young American nanny who had come to England for love. And love kept her in England for nearly 30 years. In jail. For murder.From the Publisher:
It was a crime of passion in onc of England's great houses, an open-and-shut case. But thirty years later, when the convicted nanny is freed, then spirited off to America before she can talk, Yorkshire's Superintendent Dalziel returns to the scene of the crime with Inspector Pascoe, determined to dig up the corpus delecti he investigated a generation before. Did the wrong aristocrat hang? Dalziel and Pascoe find decades-old clues that implicate a member of the royal family. When one of their prime leads is found dead, Dalziel is put "on leave"--and heads for New York to learn what the Nanny knows. Back home, Pascoe walks a thin line, quietly pursuing a case someone is trying to bury. Stiff upper lips do tell tale, but Dalziel and Pascoe discover on both sides of the Atlantic that it's hell on those trying to unearth the truth.
"Quite simply a near perfect crime novel . . . . Hill gives us a masterful composite of character, crime, and comedy. A delight on every level."--Booklist.
"A dynamic, surprising mystery! . . . The novel's chief rewards, however, are those of character: Dalziel is a brilliant, bearish delight."--Publishers Weekly
