What to expect

Brought to you by Penguin.

Sparkling characterisation and inventive plot from one of the best known and beloved detective novelists of all time.

The stabbing of irascible General Sir Arthur Billington-Smith fails to stir up grief in anyone – least of all his family, which is no wonder considering the way he had treated them all during the fateful weekend. He had disinherited his son, humiliated his wife, refused to help his financially stricken nephew and made no secret of his loathing for his son’s fiancée, a cabaret dancer. Inspector Harding picks his way through a mass of familial discontent to find the culprit – and find much more besides.
