Synopsis of A Taste for Death
Two men lie in a welter of blood in the vestry of St Matthew’s Church, Paddington, their throats brutally slashed.
One is Sir Paul Berowne, a baronet and recently-resigned Minister of the Crown, the other an alcoholic vagrant.
Dalgliesh and his team, set up to investigate crimes of particular sensitivity, are faced with a case of extraordinary complexity as they discover the Berowne family’s veneer of prosperous gentility conceals ugly and dangerous family secrets.
