The lore of bell-ringing and a brilliantly-evoked village in the remote fens of East Anglia are the unforgettable background to a story of an old unsolved crime and its violent unravelling twenty years later.
Band 11 der Serie. Das war einer meiner Lieblingsbücher mit Lord Peter Wimsey, ich habe es mehrfach auf Deutsch und auf Englisch gelesen. “The first time I read this, the denouement was shocking, breathtaking. On subsequent reads you find more and more subtlety, more and more careful characterisation.” (Leser) (274 Rezensionen / 4,2 Sterne), 388 Seiten noch günstig?
