The Nature Of The Beast Summary

The Nature Of The Beast by Frances Fyfield

Douglas Petty is a man who enjoys his reputation as an unreconstructed male with a penchant for too much wine and too many women. Inheriting his father's eccentric estate and dog sanctuary quietened him a little, and marriage to Amy a little more. Even so, it seemed out of character for him a sue a tabloid newspaper for libel when it printed a scurrilous story about him.

His lawyers told him he had a good chance of winning the case, mainly because Amy's testimony would clearly refute the story. But then Amy is involved in a horrendous train crash and while the authorities assume she died in the resulting fire, there is no body to prove it. And if she wasn't killed why has she disappeared and, with no money and no other family, where is she?

In a story of mesmerising suspense, Amy slowly reveals why she cannot return to her beloved home, and why she can never escape from the lies she was told as a child.

The Nature Of The Beast Reviews

...a mystery with global scope and consequences.... What makes this story most the perfect reminder of the dark side of human nature, but that side does not always win out. Penny is an expert at pulling away the surface of her characters to expose their deeper-and often ugly-layers, always doing so with a direct but compassionate hand * Kirkus Review *
Penny has created eleven different mystery novels and one novella, many of them bestsellers, that weave together the excitement of classic whodunits with the pleasure of small town life * TIME.COM *
Fyfield knows how to keep the reader gripped right until the intriguing read. * MAIL ON SUNDAY *
A book that grips from the beginning. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH *
A black but compelling thriller which keeps you guessing until the end. * SUNDAY EXPRESS *
Fyfield manages to tell a moving tale; wonderfully written and full of original moments. * THE TIMES *
