What did you like about the book? John Madden may have retired from Scotland Yard but he is still called in to help by his friend Inspector Sinclair to help solve a murder that happened eleven years previously in 1938. A young woman, Portia Blake, was killed, someone confessed and was hung for the crime but now a jade necklace that Portia had been wearing at the time of her murder turns up. As Madden investigates he begins to see connections among the people who had contact with Portia – but which one could really have been her murderer? Expertly read by John Curless.
