A Far and Deadly Cry: A Novel
Authors: Holbrook, Teri
Publisher: Random House Publishing Group
Synopsis: The crime scene showed that a cunning mind and a passionate hatred lay behind the killing of Lisa Stillwell. But New Scotland Yard would not have been called to this remote Hampshire village if the baby-sitter's employer hadn't been Gale Grayson, a self-exiled American with a suspicious past. Three years before, Chief Inspector Daniel Halford had watched helplessly as Gale's husband put a gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger -- seconds before Halford could arrest him for terrorism. Halford has never forgotten the scene or the pregnant young widow whose life was shattered -- and as he questions her now, he finds past and present emotions blurring his judgment. Yet piece by piece he is discovering some unsettling truths about the life of Lisa Stillwell... and a chilling picture is forming of a village that is not quite as sleepy as it seems.
