The last thing you need when you're on holiday is to become
involved in a murder. For most people, that would easily qualify as
the holiday from hell. For George Gently, it is a case of business
as usual. The Chief Inspector's quiet Easter break in Norchester is
rudely interrupted when a local timber merchant is found dead. His
son, with whom he had been seen arguing, immediately becomes the
prime suspect, although Gently is far from convinced of his guilt.
Norchester City Police gratefully accept Gently's offer to help
investigate the murder, but he soon clashes with Inspector Hansom,
the officer in charge of the case. Hansom's idea of conclusive
evidence appals Gently almost as much as Gently's thorough,
detailed, methodical style of investigation exasperates Hansom, who
considers the murder to be a straightforward affair. Locking horns
with the local law is a distraction Gently can do without when he's
on the trail of a killer.
