".a subtle novel, written with consideration by a consummate writer..."
A Scandal In Belgravia' is a story of murder; it is also a penetrating analysis of a decaying social class and a society in transition. It is the personal, deeply moving story of two men, Peter Proctor, recently retired as a senior British cabinet minister, and Timothy Wycliffe, a young aristocrat who was bludgeoned to death more than thirty years ago.
It was an unusual friendship – two young men on the lowest rung of the Foreign Office in the early 1950s. As Proctor writes his memoirs, the tragic death of Wycliffe haunts him. Although the killer was named, he was never caught however, there are still unsolved and unexplained questions about Wycliffe's death. Peter slowly searches for answers, he finds the answer that echoes the staid attitudes of that time.
