Revue de presse

Praise for Aline Templeton's Marjory Fleming series (:)

'Loved it' (Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel. (Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH)

'Skilfully plotted and well-paced . . . This book is a delight, from its leisurely start to the moving and unexpected finish.' (Guardian on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

'Interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual' (Literary Review on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP)

[Aline Templeton] has demonstrated that, just when we thought Scotland was saturated with detectives, a strong woman can elbow her way in and find a unique niche. (Scotsman on COLD IN THE EARTH)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Ugly, remote and inbred, the village of Radnesfield in the Fens has lived with its secrets for centuries.

Inevitably, its inhabitants greet the intrusion of television soap star Neville Fielding and his wife Helena with deep suspicion.

But no one anticipates the storm that will cause havoc in this small, rural community.

Driven by Neville's brutal philandering, Helena divorces him and remarries into one of Radnesfield’s oldest families.

When Neville is murdered she is caught out in a string of lies and confesses to the killing.

But Detective Sergeant Frances Howarth is haunted by a nagging fear for Helena's own safety.

With her release from prison the storm breaks, and Radnesfield’s diseased heart is shockingly exposed…

And 'The Last Act of All' is more shocking than anyone could have imagined.

'The Last Act of All' is a compelling crime thriller that will keep readers hooked from the first page to the last.

Praise for Aline Templeton:

`Templeton's a considerable writer, both intelligent and intuitive' Literary Review

'Atmospheric eeriness . . . [and a] much-too-real feel' Oxford Times

'A creepy combination of detective and gothic' Sunday Post, Dundee

'A tense and atmospheric thriller, which builds up to a crescendo of superb suspense . . . An engrossing tale of tragedy' Bolton Evening News

Aline Templeton lives in Edinburgh with her husband, in a house with a balcony built by an astronomer to observe the stars over the beautiful city skyline. She has worked in education and broadcasting and has written numerous articles and stories for newspapers and magazines. Her books include ‘Shades of Death’, ‘Night and Silence’ and ‘Past Praying For’.

Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent publisher of digital books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful. 3 octobre 2005
Par L. J. Roberts - Publié sur
I discovered Templeton with her current book "Cold in the Earth" and promptly ordered as much of her backlist as I could find. It was so worth it! She is a wonderfully atmospheric writer. In this, you feel the inclusiveness of the village and the frustration of Helena. But it's the way in which this story is told I particularly liked. The first "book" is Helena returning from prison and trying to adjust. The second "book" takes us back to her first marriage; moving to the village and up through her trial. The final "book" is the solving of the crimes. I was so engrossed in the story; I didn't suspect the villain until late. I highly recommend this book and this author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Even Though I Figured Out The Guilty Person... 6 juin 2014

I was unprepared for the back story on that person. And it was a really good one. For that reason I had to give this story a full five stars. Also I love the murder mysteries set in a small English backwater village. This one had a particularly good twist in that although it has the obligatory landed gentry going to seed, the main characters are a particularly vulgar group of TV serial actors and their accompanying retinue. Then you have all of the oddball people that one finds in small in-bred communities all over the world. Overall this was a straight-forward English countryside murder mystery and it is well written and very consuming. A wonderful read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fine, taut detection 7 mai 2014

Helena was charged with her husband's murder, and agreed to plead guilty to manslaughter. She served her sentence, and returned home to try to resume her shattered life.

But during the trial, Detective Sergeant Frances Haworth became convinced that the truth had not been uncovered, and that there are sinister forces at work in Radnesfield. The slow work of getting the facts out of the inbred, suspicious denizens of the village is well written and satisfying.

The writing is fine, often beautiful. The characters are fully developed and credible.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of those "must read" books if you're a fan of Brit Crime lit... 17 juillet 2014

With a brilliance that the English language deserves, Ms. Templeton pours it out. Excellent use of a finely crafted art, fine prose and dialog and an eye for details that would otherwise be ignored if not so adequately shod. This is one of those "must read" books if you're a fan of Brit Crime lit... it will not disappoint.

I really loved this book. It's tightly plotted and the characters are interesting and well drawn. I liked the interaction between characters and the book was fast paced and hard to put down.
