Evidence To Destroy

Margaret Yorke

Crime & mystery

A re-issue of one of Margaret Yorke's most memorable crime novels - a chillingly plausible tale of murder and revenge.

On the evening that Lydia Cunningham drives to the train station to meet her daughter Thelma, the pretty little coastal town of Milton St Gabriel is sleeping quietly. The town's utter normality is reflected in Lydia, a respectable widow of advanced years.

But Thelma's arrival will shatter the peace of Milton St Gabriel forever. Thelma brings with her Edward, a young and not altogether appealing casual pick-up with a penchant for arson, and the two of them unleash events that reveal a sordid and long-hidden tale of illegitimacy and death. But this is only the groundwork for what lies ahead as Lydia, encountering her past, falls over the edge of sanity into a nightmarish world of revenge and murder.

Margaret Yorke

Margaret Yorke began her crime writing career with a series of whodunnits featuring the Oxford don, Patrick Grant, but she found more freedom for her imagination outside the confines of a continuous character. As a result she has become as well-respected as P.D. James and Ruth Rendell.
