Books Info:

A Fatal Inversion free pdf "A Fatal Inversion" - a classic thriller from the queen of crime Barbara Vine. "An absolute winner ...a gripping read from start to end". ("Daily Mail"). "Brilliant. Vine has the kind of near-Victorian narrative drive ...that compels a reader to go on turning the pages". ("Sunday Times"). In the long hot summer of 1976, a group of young people are camping in Wyvis Hall. Adam, Rufus, Shiva, Vivien and Zosie hardly ask why they are there or how they are to live- they scavenge, steal and sell the family heirlooms. In short, they exist. Ten years later, the bodies of a woman and child are discovered in the Hall's animal cemetery. Which woman? Whose child? "I defy anyone to guess the conclusion ...the clues are cunningly planted, so that it seems one should have known all along. A most satisfying end". ("Daily Telegraph"). "Nimbly written with all the Dickensian values of vivid characterization, fine prose style and a cunningly devised plot that shifts and twists and keeps you on the edge of your chair". (Val Hennessy, "Daily Mail"). "A Fatal Inversion" is a modern classic of the crime genre. If you enjoy the novels of P.D. James, Ian Rankin and Scott Turow, you will love this book.
