Review
  • British antiques dealer and restorer Lina Townend spots a body in a field while on the way home from an estate sale. Because she is alone, she doesn’t stop, but she does notify the police. When the police arrive, however, the body is gone. Soon she is accused of stealing a pair of Anglo-Saxon rings, and it looks like someone is trying very hard to ruin her reputation in the antiques world. With the support of her partner and mentor, Griff Tripp, she investigates, solving the mystery of the missing body as well as figuring out who is trying to sabotage her career. Along the way, she draws the romantic interest of two men and cares for her reclusive father. Lina, who grew up in a string of foster homes, is an endearing but tough character with a great deal of integrity. Her first-person account includes details of antiques restoration and the world of British antiques. -- O'Brien, Sue (Reviewed 01-01-2011) (Booklist, vol 107, number 9, p52)
  • At the start of Cutler's entertaining third Lina Townend mystery (after 2010's Silver Guilt), Lina, who's on the road with a van full of antiques, phones the police after spotting the body of a well-dressed man lying in a field about 50 yards away. A brambly hedge tangled with barbed wire discourages her from getting closer. By the time the police arrive, the body has disappeared. As Lina probes the mystery of the missing corpse, she must contend with increasingly vicious personal attacks from sources as different as Sir Douglas Nelson of the British Museum, who suspects her of stealing two rare old rings, and shady dealer Arthur Habgood, who claims to be her grandfather. Her relationship with her disreputable biological father, Lord Elham, remains precarious. Lina, whose checkered past includes foster homes and self-harming behavior, grows in strength as she fights to save her reputation as one of Kent's honest antique dealers. (Feb.) --Staff (Reviewed December 20, 2010) (Publishers Weekly, vol 257, issue 50, p)
