An Air That Kills by Andrew Taylor
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first instalment in the acclaimed Lydmouth series from the prize-winning author of The American Boy and The Ashes of London. Workmen in the small market town of Lydmouth are demolishing an old cottage. A sledgehammer smashes into what looks like a solid wall. Instead, layers of wallpaper conceal the door of a locked cupboard which holds a box - and in the box is the skeleton of a young baby. Items within the box suggest that the baby was entombed early in the nineteenth century, but when another man is also found dead, the evidence suggests that the baby's death is more recent than it seems and that a killer is on the loose . . . Journalist Jill Francis, newly arrived from London, has her first assignment.'Taylor is an excellent writer. He plots with care and intelligence and the solution to the mystery is satisfyingly chilling.' - The Times
