If you are a fan of Andrew Taylor, then don’t miss the latest in his Lydmouth series featuring Richard Thornhill. Naked to the Hangman is out in paperback at 12.50 euros.

As a young police officer in Palestine during the closing months of the Mandate – the cradle of Middle Eastern terrorism – Richard Thornhill saw and did things which still haunt his dreams and make him fear for his sanity.

When a retired police officer is found dead in the ruins of Lydmouth Castle, the past comes back to claim Detective Inspector Thornhill, as he stands accused of murder.  His wife Edith and former lover Jill Francis join forces in an uneasy alliance to try to help him.

But there are many complications. Scandalous allegations have been made about Miss Awre’s School of Dancing, the Ruispidge Charity’s annual dance is under threat, teenagers haunt the newly opened Italian coffee bar and steal intimate moments in the darkness of the Rex Cinema, and the spring floods are rising higher than they have in living memory, drowning a multitude of secrets.
