Inhaltsangabe: Roger Ormerod, rated by critics (San Diego Union) "in the top rank of current British mystery writers," returns with a stunning new Inspector Richard Patton mystery. Richard and his wife, Amelia, are vacationing in Wales, looking to buy a converted water mill, when Richard gives his longtime friend ex-Detective Chief Superintendent Llewellyn Hughes a call. Hughes lives nearby, and it's been years since Richard has been him. Instead of issuing a casual invitation, Llew begs Richard and Amelia to drive over immediately. Has he urgent news that can't wait until morning. But when Richard and Amelia arrive at Llew's house, it's burning to the ground and Llew is near death. Only his little god, Cindy, survives. Clasped in Llew's hand is an envelope containing photos and references to a long-ago murder. Printed across the front are the words EDAWIN CARTER. Richard believes Llew died in an arsonist's fire. And he suspects that the fire had something to do with the 1976 murder of playwright and director Edwin Carter. Somebody must have wanted to keep Llew from seeing Richard and discussing the case. With two murders to investigate, one in the present and one in the past, Richard knows that only in solving the old crime will he find his friend's killer. Very recent crimes are usually the easiest to solve. As the weeks and months go by, the clues become more elusive. A murder more than ten years old presents virtually impossible problems, as Richard learns when he tries to reopen the Carter investigation. Confronted with hostility from people who would prefer to forget the past, confused by his own feelings for a primary player, Richard faces one of the most difficult cases in his long career. From its startling plot to its subtle nuances, 'An Alibi Too Soon' shows master craftsman Roger Ormerod at his best. Book Dust Jacket
