Speak For The Dead

Fiction, Crime & mystery

A new reissue of Margaret Yorke's classic crime novel, Speak for the Dead

Carrie Foster was still young when she started breaking the law.
Gordon Matthews had transgressed only once, but his crime was far more serious.

A pity Carrie didn't suspect anything when he proposed to her. But then, why should she? Gordon looked presentable now - and prison had given him time to invent a new past. Nicholas was different - a shy young man, eager to please - and to Carrie their affair began as an amusing diversion. A bit of harmless fun, and Nicholas need never know about her other life with Gordon. But there was something Carrie didn't know either . . .

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.
