Where Death Delights by Bernard Knight
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first in a new series from author of the 'Crowner John' books When in 1955, forensic pathologist Richard Pryor uses his 'golden handshake' from Singapore to set up in private practice with former Home Office scientist Angela Bray, their risky venture in the Wye Valley depends on getting enough case-work to survive. A friendly coroner gives them a start and when two women both claim that human remains found near a reservoir are their relatives, the dilemma is given to them to investigate. At the same time, a prominent barrister declares that his daughter's drowning off the Gower coast was not an accident, but murder. Her husband strenuously denies the accusations and it takes the combined efforts of the police and the pair from Tintern to get at the truth. Written by a former Home Office pathologist with over forty years' experience, the story carries the stamp of forensic authenticity, as well as faithfully capturing the atmosphere of the 'fifties.
