Overview

La cuarta novela navideña con crimen victoriano de Anne Perry: una pequeña comunidad deberá rendir cuentas con su propio pasado.

Los planes de Emily Radley –la cuñada del inspector Thomas Pitt– para Navidad se van al traste cuando le llega la noticia de que su tía Susannah se está muriendo. A pesar de que no tenían mucha relación, Emily decide ir hasta Irlanda para acompañarla en sus últimos días. Sin embargo, cuando llega a Connemara, queda patente que Susannah tiene preocupaciones mayores que su estado de salud.

Las cosas empeoran cuando Daniel, el único superviviente de un naufragio causado por una de las fuertes tormentas que asolan la región, busca cobijo en el hogar de Susannah. En el pueblo no es muy bienvenido, y Emily se percata de ello a la vez que descubre extraños paralelismos entre su caso y la muerte sin resolver de otro hombre joven, Connor, varios años atrás.

Susannah, desesperada por averiguar qué le pasó a Connor antes de morir, le pide a Emily que investigue. Así, descubrirá que algunas personas del pueblo están dispuestas a cualquier cosa para mantener a salvo sus secretos.

«Si te apetece una buena novela a lo Agatha Christie, prueba con Anne Perry.» Glasgow Evening Times

The fourth Victorian Christmas crime novel by Anne Perry: a small community must come to grips with their own past.
 
The plans of Emily Radley —sister-in-law of Inspector Thomas Pitt— for Christimas are ruined whe she is notified her aunt Susannah is on her deathbed. Despite the fact she barely knows her aunt, Emily travels to Ireland to be with her during her last days.  But as she arrives in Connemara, it is obvious Aunt Susannah has other things on her mind besides her health.
 
Things get worse when Daniel, the lone survivor of a shipwreck caused by a severe storm that plague the region, seeks shelter in the home of Susannah. He is not welcomed in town, and Emily notices strange parallels between his case and the unsolved death of another young man, Connor, several years before.
 
Susannah, desparate to find out what happened to Connor before dying, asks Emily to investigate. But she soon finds out that some people in town will do anything to keep their secrets safe.

Meet the Author

Anne Perry

Anne Perry nació en Blackheath, Inglaterra, en 1938. Su escolarización fue interrumpida en varias ocasiones por los frecuentes cambios de domicilio y sucesivas enfermedades,
que la llevaron a dedicarse a la lectura apasionadamente. Su padre trabajó como astrónomo, matemático y físico nuclear. Él fue quien la animó a dedicarse a la escritura.
Tardó veinte años en publicar su primer libro. Durante todo ese tiempo tuvo diferentes trabajos para ganarse la vida y dedicarse a lo que realmente era su pasión: escribir. Su primera novela sobre la serie del inspector Pitt, editada en 1979, fue Crímenes de Cater Street, publicada también en esta colección. Anne Perry se ha consagrado como consumada especialista en la recreación de los claroscuros, contrastes y ambigüedades de la sociedad victoriana. Su serie de novelas protagonizadas por el inspector Pitt y su perspicaz esposa Charlotte es seguida por millones de lectores en todo el mundo.
