Robert Goddard is widely hailed as a master at crafting elegant, serpentine novels that keep readers riveted until the final unexpected twist. With "Hand In Glove," Goddard weaves a compelling tale of murder, family mystery, literary scandal, and hazardous romance...Robbery seems to be the motive for the death of dowager Beatrix Abberly; shady antiques dealer Colin Fairfax is quickly arrested and charged with her murder. Colin, however, maintains his innocence, and asks his timid brother, Derek, to clear his name. Charlotte Ladram, Beatrix's loyal godchild and heir, has doubts abouth everything, including the motive for the crime. Her godmother was the sister of the great English poet Tristram Abberley, who died fifty years earlier in the Spanish Civil War. When long-lost letters he wrote to Beatrix are unearthed, they reveal shocking secrets about Tristram's work - secrets any number of people would kill to possess. Drawn together by their passionate desire to find the answers, Charlotte and Derek follow a labyrinthine trail of clues across rural England to Wales, New York, Paris, and Spain - only to discover that no one and nothing are what they seem. A pattern of evil is surfacing that will change forever their sense of the world... and lead them on a quest even more intriguing than the Chinese box of mysteries they've opened in the aftermath of an old woman's cruel murder...
