Dead And Gone
By Dorothy Simpson
A classic mystery from the Silver Dagger award-winning author. The fifteenth book in the Inspector Thanet series.
It is high summer, and Virginia Mintar, wife of a prominent QC, wanders away from a garden party to cool down in the pool. She never returns - her body is dredged up from a well on her estate the next morning.
Inspector Luke Thanet and his partner, Sergeant Mike Lineham, quickly discern that Virginia's scandalous behavior had earned her the rage of family, friends, and lovers. But who had finally been driven to kill her?
Dorothy Simpson worked as a French teacher and then as a marriage-guidance counsellor, before turning to writing full time. She is married with three children and lives near Maidstone, Kent. Last Seen Alive won the Crime Writers' Association Silver Dagger Award in 1985.
