Overview

NOT AVAILABLE TO RENT IN CANADA (Publisher no longer making book)

Minette Walters's ninth novel, Fox Evil, set in the seemingly bucolic English countryside, establishes a blistering new standard for contemporary suspense.

When elderly Ailsa Lockyer-Fox is found dead in her garden, dressed only in nightclothes and with bloodstains on the ground near her body, the finger of suspicion points at her wealthy husband, Colonel James Lockyer-Fox. A coroner's investigation deems it death by natural causes, but the gossip surrounding James refuses to go away.

Friendless and alone, James and his reclusive behavior begins to alarm his attorney, whose concern deepens when he discovers that his client has become the victim of a relentless campaign accusing him of far worse than the death of his wife. James is unwilling to fight the allegations, choosing instead to devote his energies to a desperate search for the illegitimate granddaughter who may prove his savior as he battles for his name-and his life.

THIS IS AN ABRIDGED VERSION. I listed to it, and felt sort of left out of the story. I was intrigued enough to get the paperback and read it afterwards. Walters is a great writer, with gritty stories and unusual, strong characters. I recommend all her books, but she does get into some uncomfortable issues in her stories. Good story...but look for the full version.

Enjoyed the twists and turns of this story. One of those books you need to know what will happen next.
