DIFFERENT COVER!!

From the front cover.

'The No. 1 Bestseller

'Fascinating ... Minette Walters is on her best form in her gripping new novel'
Sunday Telegraph'

From the back cover:

''Walters' world is dark and ambiguous, Fox Evil is the work of a writer at the peak of her confidence and supreme ability'
Marcel Berlins, The Times

When elderly Ailsa Lockyer-Fox is found dead in her garden, dressed only in nightclothes and with blood stains on the ground near her body, the finger of suspicion points at her wealthy, landowning husband, Colonel James Lockyer-Fox. A Coroner's inquest gives a verdit of 'natural causes' but the gossip surrounding James refuses to go away.

Why? Because he's guilty? Or because resentful women in the isolated Dorset village where he lives rule the roost? Shenstead is a place of too few people and too many secrets. Why have James and Ailsa cut their children out of their wills? What happened in the past to create such animosity within the family? And why is James so desperate to find his illegitimate grandchild?

Friendless and alone, his reclusive behaviour begins to alarm his London-based solicitor, Mark Ankerton, whose concern deepens when he discovers that James has become the victim of a relentless campaign which accuses him of far worse than the death of his wife. Allegations which he refuses to challenge ... Why? Because they're a motive for murder ... ?

'Minette Walters patrols the darkest areas of the human heart. Her writing demonstrates an acute grip on psychological truth at the point where violence meets domestic gothic'
Daily Mail'

This is a paperback edition fron Pan MacMillan, published in 2003. The book was originally published in 2002.

I haven't read this copy, but I have read the book. I thought it was a very intriguing read, well written and with a fascinating setting. Excellent Walters. :-)

I bought this book at a flea market at Tåsen elementary school in Oslo on Sunday, April 26th, 2009.
