Weycombe: A Novel of Suspense (Hardcover)
To those on the outside, Weycombe is perfect. For those on the inside, the cost of perfection is deadly.
Living in the gated, wealthy village of Weycombe with her titled English husband is a fantasy come true for American Jillian White. But the murder of a local estate agent mars the so-pretty surface of her life and home. Worried about a killer on the loose, Jill tries to piece together clues hidden in the many versions of truth she hears from her suspicious neighbors. As Jill plunges deep into the investigation, her own suspicions grow into a warped web of lies and treachery.
From award-winning author G.M. Malliet comes a gripping psychological tale of murder and deception in which few can be trusted and nothing is as perfect as it seems.
"Weycombe is a well written mystery with lots of suspense and an interesting plot with twists and turns."--ParrySound.com
