The police assume that the coroner will return a verdict of suicide. Only Dr Blakeney, it seems, doubts that - until it is discovered that Mathilda's diaries have disappeared.

What I enjoy most about Minette Walters books is the depth of characterisation - often (Fox Evil, Dark Room) the plotting or the payoff has disappointed me - but her precision in drawing characters, her dialogue and her insight into human emotion is excellent. This is well plotted and very well read - the three stars merely indicates that I feel that, unabridged, it would be richer and more resonant
