Best, G. M., The Barchester Murders

A twist sure to thrill fans of the Chronicles of Barsetshire, Anthony Trollope must solve a mystery linked to Reverand Septimus Harding

When Anthony Trollope visits Salisbury for the first time he thinks the city is idyllic until an old man called Thomas Rider is found brutally murdered in the almshouse known as Hiram’s Hospital. It soon becomes clear to Trollope that the killing is linked to a long-hidden secret about the Hospital’s Warden, the Reverend Septimus Harding. But would the kindly Warden or one of the old men under his care commit murder to prevent that secret being disclosed? Or is the killer a member of the Warden’s family?
