The travelers have come to town. They've set up their motor homes and buses in the woods & are planning to stay a while. Their leader knows more about the people of Shenstead Village than he should and is about to make their lives a living hell. A tale of psychological suspense.
"The traverlers have come to town. They've set up their motor home and buses in the woods and are planning to stay a while. Their leader knows more about the people of Shenstead Village than he should.
The village Patriarch, Colonel Fox, has his secrets--a wife who died under mysterious circumstances, an illegitimate heir, hapless children. All of which will come to light when he gets ensnared...like a fox in a trap."
"A disturbing tale about a proud family that would rather die out than give up it's shameful secrets. Walter's characters vibrate with the envy and spite of their pent-up grievances." The New York Times Book Review
Minnette has never let me down. I've enjoyed every one of her books, this one is no exception. Fox evil enough twists and turns to keep even the most jaded mystery reader happy. And, it's the first book I've every read that uses alopecia in the story. I recommend it!
I think this was the best of her books.
Minette Walters - her books alway keep me from housework. I never want to put them down. The settings are always different - so no boredom. This one was just as good as all the other....page turner.
