Synopsis
A tranquil weekend party in early December at a magnificent country house is shattered by a suspicious death. Attending the party and taking a leading role in the ensuing investigation is one of the most beloved characters from Anne Perry's "Thomas Pitt" series: Lady Vespasia Cumming-Gould. Lady Vespasia's friend Isobel has made a cruel remark about Gwendolen Kilmuir on the night Gwendolen was meant to have become engaged to the eligible Bertie Rosythe. Gwendolen flees the room, and the next morning her body is found in the lake in the gardens of the estate. It appears she has jumped from the bridge. The host, Omegus Jones and Vespasia decide to find who or what might have led Gwendolen to resort to such an extreme measure. They vow to make the guilty party seek forgiveness and expiation through the task of taking a sealed letter written by Gwendolen before her death to her mother up in the north of Scotland. The journey will be both physically and emotionally arduous but will bring answers to some unexpected and profound questions.

Anne Perry has written some stories especially for christmas.
The journey in this book sort of ends at christmas time, but christmas is not the main theme.

It is fun to meet Lady Vespasia, a well known figure from Anne Perry's "Thomas Pitt" Stories, at a much younger age, as a beautyful thirtysomething.

The story itself is nice to read and gives an explanation for the "mystery" which is - an explanation...

An der Hypovereinsbank am Burgplatz
Wenn man vom Burgplatz die Straße hinuntergeht, wo links das Einwohnermeldeamt ist, ist die Hypo-Bank rechts- auf dem Vorplatz (gegenüber von Küchenfuchs) ist ein großes bewachsenes Geländer- neben einem der Eingänge steht ein Elektrokasten "Stadtbeleuchtung" und dahinter hat sich das Buch ein gemütliches Plätzchen gesucht

Juhuu, mein erstes gefangenes Buch!
Ich bin gestern schon auf der Suche nach der Commerzbank durch die halbe Innenstadt gepirscht (Notiz: nächstes Mal die Releasenotes aufmerksamer lesen!) und habe dann eine halbe Stunde das ganze Geländer inspiziert in der irrigen Annahme, das Buch sei irgendwo im Grünzeug versteckt ;-) Dabei habe ich auch etliche verwirrte Blicke auf mich gezogen, aber was macht man nicht alles für ein Buch :D
Also heute nochmal los und da hat mich das Buch ganz unschuldig aus dem Versteck heraus angelächelt.

Danke, soleille!

28.2. Das Buch liegt schon viel zu lange hier und ich drück mich immer wieder davor. Deswegen kommt es bei nächster Gelegenheit mit in die OBCZ.
