Summary
The Dupayne, a small private museum on the edge of London's Hampstead Heath devoted to the interwar years 1919-39, is in turmoil. The trustees--the three children of the museum founder, old Max Dupayne--are bitterly at odds over whether it should be closed. Then one of them is brutally murdered, and what seemed to be no more than a family dispute erupts into horror. For even as Commander Adam Dalgiesh and his team investigate the first killing, a second corpse is discovered. Clearly, someone at the Dupayne is prepared to kill, and kill again

Summary
Commander Adam Dalgliesh investigates a series of murders at the Dupayne, a small private museum in London. The case is fraught with danger and complications from the beginning, and to make matters more difficult, Dalgliesh is in love, and the closer he gets to solving the crime, the farther he is driven from committing to the woman he loves.
