Like an archaeological dig, The Roth Trilogy strips away the past to reveal the menace lurking in the present: 'Taylor has established a sound reputation for writing tense, clammy novels that perceptively penetrate the human psyche' - Marcel Berlins, The Times The shadow of past evil hangs over the present in Andrew Taylor's Roth Trilogy as he skilfully traces the influences that have come to shape the mind of a psychopath. Beginning, in The Four Last Things, with the abduction of little Lucy Appleyard and a grisly discovery in a London graveyard, the layers of the past are gradually peeled away through The Judgement of Strangers and The Office of the Dead to unearth the dark and twisted roots of a very immediate horror that threatens to explode the serenity of Rosington's peaceful Cathedral Close.
