Death of a Dormouse

by Reginald Hill

Death of a Dormouse Synopsis

`So far out in front that he need not bother looking over his shoulder' Sunday Telegraph The balding policeman on Trudi Adamson's doorstep brings the worst news possible: her husband Trent has been burned to death in a freak car accident. Suddenly a widow after years of marriage, Trudi soon discovers there's a lot she didn't know about her late husband. Why did he resign from his job without telling her? And where is all his money? As shock piles upon shock, Trudi is forced to re-examine her belief in Trent, and ultimately in herself. Compelled to leave the cosy nest of her old life, she is out in the open and fighting for her survival.
