Publisher's Summary

A large country mansion. A locked room. A gruesome murder. 

Russian oligarch Alexander Volkov has invited 1,000 guests to a party at his palatial Surrey residence, Westgrave Hall. But while giving a private tour of the library, a gunman kills Volkov, wounding his ex-wife and slaying her new beau. Nothing makes sense to DCI Craig Gillard. In the blood-spattered crime scene there are no forensic traces of anyone else involved, CCTV shows no one entered or left the library, and everyone seems to have an alibi. Is it a crime of revenge, the squaring of a love triangle, or a Russian government operation? Could the victims have simply shot each other? Gillard’s eventual discovery is shocking even to him. 

A gripping crime thriller from a master of the genre, The Bodies at Westgrave Hall will leave you guessing until the very end.

Listened to it in one day

I like to read a series in order. That said, this edition can be read as a stand alone and easily followed as the storyline does not require a background of the usual cast of characters. The editors synopsis sets the scene, no need to repeat it here. The elements of the crime story move quickly, the focus is on the who is the killer, lots of red herrings, but fair. Truly entertaining!

Disappointed!

This was the least Favorite of the series. It’s hard for me to put a finger on exactly why it disappointed me

Crazy Great - Just About Perfect

I could not stop listening. Incredibly rich, twisty murder mystery/espionage/revenge plot. Colorful characters. Great writing. Never saw the end coming. One of the best books in a superb series. It could easily stand alone if you have not listened to/ read any of the others. Narrator is first rate too.

Didn't see the end coming

Not bad. Steers you in a direction and then turns left. Narration is good 👍

twisty journey

I always enjoy both this author and the narrator and this book is no exception. This title can be appreciated as a stand alone but previous titles provide the character backgrounds along with good stories.

QUITE ENTERTAINING

Entertaining story with interesting characters and a satisfactory conclusion. Excellent narration, as usual, by York.

Intense

This book was intense and dark at times. The murderer was so unexpected -well done there! The last chapter though made me so sad. Can absolutely be read as a stand-alone book but the history in the previous books is nice to know for background. The narrator is excellent as usual. Again, well done!
