An ingenious and subtle murder mystery from the 'mistress of unease'
After serving ten years of a life sentence for murder, Stephen Dawes was released on licence to start a new life. But Stephen could not let the past bury itself - he alone knew he had not killed his wife Marcia.
As Stephen set out to reconstruct Marcia's last hours - the time she must have spent plotting a suicide meant to look like a murder - he gradually began to realise that nothing was as it had seemed . . . And that he was chasing a murderer himself - and putting his own life in jeopardy.
INTIMATE KILL is a superlative crime mystery full of twists and turns - with new surprises around every bend.
Margaret Yorke knows all about human weaknesses and follies, vanities and ambitions, as well as about that rarer phenomenon real, unadulterated evil. - Susan Hill
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.
