No Man's Nightingale
The twenty-fourth Wexford novel published by Hutchinson in 2013
The woman vicar of St Peter’s Church may not be popular among the community of Kingsmarkham. But it still comes as a profound shock when she is found strangled in her vicarage.
Inspector Wexford is retired, but he retains a relish for solving mysteries, especially when they are as close to home as this one is. So when he’s asked whether he will assist on the case, he readily agrees. But why did the vicar die? And is anyone else in Kingsmarkham in danger?
