An Air That Kills
Andrew Taylor
It is the week when Jill Francis first comes to Lydmouth. Jill is an outsider in more senses than one. She's a journalist in a man's profession, an onlooker belonging nowhere. And she has her own tragic reasons for knowing that November is the month of the dead.

When workmen demolishing an old inn discover the pitiful remains of a newborn baby in a disused privy, Jill becomes an unwilling partner in Detective Inspector Richard Thornhill's investigation. Thornhill himself is an outsider, a man torn by desires he dare not articulate even to himself.

The case stretches back to a celebrated Victorian murder trial, and forward to the more recent past. Its ramifications spread like a cancer through the close-knit provincial community. Old wounds begin to bleed again, and suddenly there is another corpse.
