What an honor, to become a trustee of one of England's distinguished stately homes. Yorkshire cop Charlie Peace's wife Felicity is at first thrilled when she's asked to help oversee Walbrook Manor, a recent gift to the nation. It's not long, though, before both she and Charlie smell trouble. Suspenseful, witty and, as always, superbly insightful, A Charitable Body shows Barnard at his scintillating best.
