Evidence To Destroy
By Margaret Yorke
A re-issue of one of Margaret Yorke's most memorable crime novels - a chillingly plausible tale of murder and revenge.
On the evening that Lydia Cunningham drives to the train station to meet her daughter Thelma, the pretty little coastal town of Milton St Gabriel is sleeping quietly. The town's utter normality is reflected in Lydia, a respectable widow of advanced years.
But Thelma's arrival will shatter the peace of Milton St Gabriel forever. Thelma brings with her Edward, a young and not altogether appealing casual pick-up with a penchant for arson, and the two of them unleash events that reveal a sordid and long-hidden tale of illegitimacy and death. But this is only the groundwork for what lies ahead as Lydia, encountering her past, falls over the edge of sanity into a nightmarish world of revenge and murder.
Margaret Yorke was awarded the 1999 Cartier Diamond Dagger Award for her outstanding achievements in the field of crime writing. She has over fifty books to her credit and is a past chairman of the Crime Writers' Association.
