Publisher's Summary

Lady Wainwright presides over the Gothic gloom at Belting, in mourning for her two sons lost in the Second World War. Long afterwards a stranger arrives at Belting, claiming to be the missing David Wainwright, who was not killed after all but held captive for years in a Russian prison camp. With Lady Wainwright's health fading, her inheritance is at stake, and the family is torn apart by doubts over its mysterious long-lost son. Belting is shadowed by suspicion and intrigue, and then the first body is found. 

This atmospheric novel of family secrets, first published in 1964, is by a winner of the CWA Diamond Dagger.

A great find - excellent!

If you like a post-war mystery with a bit of murder, you’ll enjoy this tale; the story is told and mystery unravelled by the observations and voice of an eighteen year old boy.
The readers voice is suitably young and fits the age of our hero; it is a well written story, which flows well, also very amusing at times too. I throughly enjoyed it and can highly recommend.
