About this product
- DescriptionThe blast rocked the entire block of flats, awaking Detective Inspector Ben Jurnet from a sleep of exhaustion. Bells, sirens, whoopers -- sounds that betokened rescue, the arrival of fire engines, ambulances, the police his brothers -- reached him on the morning air. Everything under control at least. Or so he thought. Outside, near the wrecked Rover, a shoe lay on the ground. In it, a foot with an ankle attached. Miriam's shoe. Miriam's ankle. Was it all a ghastly mistake, a trap set for the police generally, or for Jurnet in particular, that had by dreadful chance caught the wrong victim? Had political murder arrived in sedate and sensible Angleby, that jewel of East Anglia? Why, in heaven's name, Miriam? Jurnet's search for the answer to that question proves to be a journey into his very heart and soul. A Beautiful Death combines all the elements of a page-turning thriller with a moving statement about love, bereavement, grief and renewal.
- Author BiographyOne of the purest lyric voices in the mystery field New York Times Book Review Sylvia Theresa Haymon was born in Norwich, and is best known for her eight crime fiction novels featuring the character Inspector Ben Jurnet. Haymon also wrote two non-fiction books for children, as well as two memoirs of her childhood in East Anglia. The Ben Jurnet series enjoyed success in both the UK and the US during Haymon's lifetime: Ritual Murder (1982) won the prestigious CWA Silver Dagger Award from the Crime Writers' Association. Stately Homicide (1984), a skilful variation on the country house mystery, was praised by the New York Times as a 'brilliantly crafted novel of detection...stylish serious fiction', and favourably compared to the work of Dorothy L. Sayers.
