When the body of a young ordinand, Ronald Treeves, turns up buried in a sandy bank on the Suffolk coast near isolated St. Anselm's, a High Anglican theological college, it's unclear whether his death was an accident, suicide or murder. The mystery deepens a few days later when someone suffocates Margaret Munroe, a retired nurse with a bad heart, because she remembers an event 12 years earlier that could have some bearing on whatever's amiss at St. Anselm's. Enter Dalgliesh at the behest of Ronald's father, Sir Alred, who's received an anonymous note suggesting foul play in his son's death....'--Publishers Weekly, 2001.

Political Suicide, Barnard, Robert
3 Political Suicide Barnard, Robert
Good. 
Paperback. Paperback 1995 Foul Play Press / W.W. Norton. Last 20 pages moderately wavy from dampness. Outside like new; spine uncreased; very clean; pages bright; binding tight. Great reading copy. 218 pages. Language: English. 'When the body of MP James Partridge is dredged from the Thames, more fuss is made of the empty seat in the House of Commons than of the conscientious politician's probable suicide. Looking for leads, Superintendent Sutcliffe of Scotland Yard follows the three leading contenders as they scramble for support in the quickly organized Yorkshire election. The Tory contender is slick and opportunistic, the Labour man charismatic but unreliable, and the local Alliance candidate one whose electoral appeal has already proven limited. Sutcliffe turns up plenty of shady doings, and worse, in the candidates' histories, and his final solution reminds that in politics and murder, personalities are always more germane than issues. Author of Fete Fatale and Death of an Old Goat, Barnard has mastered the unpredictable, credible plot, and writes with warmth and mellow wit.'--Publishers Weekly, 1986.
