KIRKUS REVIEW

Thomas Harding, forced into retirement in a small English village and a Tudor manor house, finds a skeleton behind the panelling and before long is up a family tree--researching the archives for the deceased boy Baronet of 150 years ago. Synchronized with this is the current murder of a wayward young wife, and both crimes provide a continuing, congruent puzzle. Traditional, literate, lenitive.
