Mrs. Malory and the Only Good Lawyer
Add to Wish List
London solicitor Graham Percy has always been a trial, but
Mrs. Maloryâ€™s kindhearted late husband never could turn
back on his old Oxford Acquaintance. Now Mrs. Malory has
inherited the persnickety, long-winded bachelor and his
interminable four-day yearly visits to her home in the
scenic seaside town of Taviscombe. But this year is
different. Graham Percyâ€™s stay is abruptly cut shortâ€¦when
someone stabs him most fatally.
In death Graham Percy turns out to be anything but dull.
Mrs. Malory discovers that although he was shockingly
incompetent at law, he was brilliant at acquiring other
peopleâ€™s secrets. Soon she is snooping into the very
private lives of a seemingly proper professor of Classics;
an author whose goat-raising wife could also have bats in
the belfry; and a wheelchair-bound actor whose signature
role is the great betrayer lago.
When Mrs. Malory unearths a motive rooted in a tragic tale
of doomed love, she finds herself wrestling with her own
conscience. For if the old axiom is true that the only
good lawyer is a dead lawyer. How do you unmask a killer
who nobody wants found?
