Description de l'ouvrage

18 mai 2000
When David marries Tessa he feels life is starting all over again. He gets a transfer to a small police station in mid Wales, leaving behind the stresses of inner-London policing, his previous marriage, and the son who doesn't want to see him anymore. Tessa, an artist, will be able to paint from the cosy little cottage in a Welsh village. But soon David and Tessa realise that they've chosen entirely the wrong village: it's full of unpleasant people, innuendo and nasty looks. Tessa is being harrassed by a local youth who turns out to be something much more dangerous than a stalker. And when a local nurse is killed and David's job become all-important once more, she has no one to turn to...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Irritating 1 septembre 2011
Par Sires - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The writing is not terrible but I thought the mystery lacking and I definitely wanted to smack some sense into Tessa Cordiner. It wouldn't be bad if Tessa did not show the occasional ability to cope before going all put upon. too stupid to live, and totally dependent on her husband to save her.

There's four different plot threads: 1)The anonymous interview of a mental health professional with a very unpleasant and plainly delusional patient; 2) Tessa and David's difficulties fitting into the village largely based on the villager's support to the point of idiocy of a local hooligan accused of stalking Tessa; 3) The murder of a young nurse and the waves it causes in the lives of those who were involved with her; and 4) David's difficulties with his ex-wife and his teenaged son.

The interview pops up as a continuing chapters through out the novel. I thought it a dead give away as to the solution of the mystery and the final twist.

As for Tessa's problems with the locals-- the author does everything she can to isolate Tessa including alienate her from her policeman husband and having her car break down at a very unfortunate moment. This book might have worked very well as a study of a woman brought to the edge by the circumstances she finds herself in if the author had stuck to Tessa's story and not added all the other threads. The fact that the author tells a great deal of the story from Tessa's point of view makes the conclusion less satisfying when near the end the viewpoint shifts permanently away from Tessa.

The murder of the young nurse does stir up some suspense but that is quickly dissipated.

While the crisis near the end tries to bring things together, the actual mopping up of the various mysteries is weak and unsatisfying.

Tessa Cordiner and her policeman husband David have moved to an idyllic rural village in Wales. But the idyllic life soon turns to terror. The body of a dog is found that police feel may have been practice for a human killing. A young woman is found murdered and left naked on a hilltop. And Tessa feels she is being watched and threatened

Templeton did an excellent job of conveying the discomfort of moving into a very small, insular community, particularly where the native residents speak a different language. There felt to be a lack of cohesion to the plot; the bits just didn't seem to tie together. I had a hard time connecting with the characters, including the protagonist. The suspense was good--I think it could have been stronger---and I didn't see the killer until almost the end. This was good, but not my favorite of her books.

The author was new to me and I feel I've made a good discovery. I really enjoyed the story: the settings, the characters and the plot. The author uses a device of starting chapters with an anonymous post-crime interview with someone who must be the villain. This kept me guessing and there were enough diversions so that their identity didn't become obvious until very near the end. I also really liked the way the pressures of David's police career and Tessa's artistic endeavours impacted both on their marriage and Tessa's fears. I will definitely be reading more books by this author.

I found this book bit of nothingness. Didn't really give me a read where I couldn't wait for the next page but persevered until finished. Sometimes books make an imprint on your mind but afraid this book is going to pass me by.

I have enjoyed all of Aline Templeton's books - and have read every one of them. The characters are believeable and likeable, and the plots are all well executed. Altogether good reads, and I highly recommend them.
