About the Author
MARTIN EDWARDS was born in Knutsford, Cheshire. He read law at Balliol College, Oxford and then trained as a solicitor. Married with two children, he is currently a partner at Weightmans LLP, a leading national law firm. He published various legal articles and textbooks before turning his hand to crime fiction and is the author of the acclaimed legal mysteries featuring Harry Devlin. He also writes the hugely popular crime series set in the Lake District, featuring The Coffin Trail which saw him shortlisted for the Theakston`s Crime Novel of the Year Award. He is also a critic and has edited various short story collections and writes The Martin Edward's Column on BookNoir. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
At the start of the impressive eighth entry in Edwards?'s Harry Devlin series (/All the Lonely People/, etc.), the Liverpool attorney receives a fake newspaper notice announcing his death on Midsummer?'s Eve. Subsequent threatening messages lead him to take the less-than-a-week deadline seriously. Given Devlin?'s penchant for sticking his nose where it doesn??t belong, many people bear him murderous grudges. Devlin focuses on two suspects??Tom Gunter, a violent thug and a former client, and Aled Borth, a loner angered that the lawyer?'s best efforts didn??t result in a charge of murder being brought against the nursing home where Borth?'s mother died. The addition of a serial killer who severs his victim?'s tongues might have proven too much for the plot to bear in a lesser writer?'s hands, but Edwards skillfully weaves the strands together. While some readers will guess the truth before Devlin does, all will enjoy this twisty whodunit. -- Publishers Weekly (12/24/2007) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

wonderful readReviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 October 2013
This was the second Harry Devlin book I read after All the lonely people. Brilliant. Was out of of sequence but it didn't matter. I am now up to book 6 and will be sorry when the series comes to an end.

enjoyed the book. Good yarn
Very good but not the best!Reviewed in the United States on 12 October 2018
As usual Harry Devlin enthrals and Liverpool is an additional character. However. this is not the best in the series. it is still very good but the story is very complicated and only just credible. I will still be buying the next one!
shoulda read the reviews firstReviewed in the United States on 28 September 2013
I should have read the reviews here on Amazon before I bought this book. I had just finished book 3 of the Lake District series and was looking forward to the next one. Amazon says that this is #4 but it is another series altogether. I'm disappointed. Other reviewers have pointed the out but I didn't read the reviews until after I read a couple of chapters.
Not a Lake District Mystery!Reviewed in the United States on 17 May 2013
... so the heading was a little misleading. In fact, it's from the Harry Devlin series set in Liverpool. This isn't as good a series but is still quite amusing...
