Orchestrated Death

The naked body of a beautiful violinist is found in a derelict flat in White City, and the middle-class, middle-aged and - according to his partner, Atherton - menopausal Slider wrestles with an investigation which takes him to far-flung Birmingham.

At Morland Place, Nicholas had hoped that his brother Benedict, had been banished forever, but railway fever has brought Benedict back to Yorkshire as an engineer on the Leeds & Selby line. It is a lonely life and he fears he will never be wealthy enough to marry his new love, Miss Fleetham. Nicholas fears that Benedict is not only a threat to his inheritance but to Morland Place itself, as plans to bring the railway to York will desecrate the estate.

The conflict between the brothers mirrors the nation's battle between the old and new, but the Morland feud seems certain to end in tragedy and no-one the victor.
