Swaddled in snow, the town of Breckham Market looks like a tourist's dream of the Little English Village-the sort of place where the worst that can happen is a spot of teenage vandalism at the church hall, and where old-fashioned values are upheld by those pillars of British virtue, the police chief and the local vicar.

Overview

Swaddled in snow, the town of Breckham Market looks like a tourist's dream of the Little English Village-the sort of place where the worst that can happen is a spot of teenage vandalism at the church hall, and where old-fashioned values are upheld by those pillars of British virtue, the police chief and the local vicar. The vicar might have come from Central Casting, with his saintly blue eyes and his cozily pudgy, bun-baking wife. But when the snow starts to melt, so too does the vicar's faade. And what comes to the surface has Breckham Market looking less like a tourist's haven and more like fodder for the tabloids.

Meet the Author

Sheila Radley is the pseudonym of Sheila Robinson, who was born and brought up in rural Northamptonshire, one of the fortunate means-tested generation whose further education was free. She went from her village school via high school to London University, where she read history.

She served for nine years as an education officer in the Women's Royal Air Force, then worked variously as a teacher, a clerk in a shoe factory, a civil servant and in advertising. In the 1960s she opted out of conventional work and joined her partner in running a Norfolk village store and post office, where she began writing fiction in her spare time. Her first books, written as Hester Rowan, were three romantic novels; she then took to crime, and wrote 10 crime novels as Sheila Radley.
