In these five original tales, George plumbs the depths of human nature as only she can. From the chilling tale of a marriage built on an appalling set of lies that only death can reveal, to the title story about a penniless schoolteacher whose ambition turns murderous, I, Richard is filled with page-turning drama and unmatched suspense.
Thanks to Inspector Thomas Lynley, a squabbling group of Anglophiles discovers a killer in its midst, but little help is on hand when a picture-perfect town is shattered by an eccentric new resident's horrifying pet project. And when a wealthy husband is haunted by suspicions about his much-younger wife, it becomes clear that a man's imagination can be his own worst enemy.

"In her first story collection, eminent British author George presents five nimbly written and gripping tales, each with a stunning conclusion." (Publishers Weekly)
"Satisfying and memorable, this collection is highly recommended." (Library Journal)
I have admired Derek Jacobi as an actor so I was eager to buy an audiobook with him reading. Big mistake. His American accent - especially his accent as an American woman - was so bad I had to stop.
