Fallen Angel (The Roth Trilogy) by Andrew Taylor
The thrilling and powerful psychological trilogy, reissued to coincide with a major 3 part TV adaptation, Fallen Angel, starring Charles Dance and Emilia Fox, from the bestelling author of `The American Boy'.
`Nobody's perfect,' says a little girl in a walled garden.
Certainly not the child stolen from a shabby London street. Or the sexually frustrated suburban vicar. Or least of all, perhaps, the woman who runs out of good times and comes to perch like a cuckoo in the bosom of a perfect family.
Fallen Angel uncovers the secret history of a murderer, tracing the full damage and horror of an unforgiving killer over forty years. A chilling account of one family's self-destruction, the story slowly strips away the past, like an archaeological dig into the very nature of evil.
