Bluethroat Morning : The hero of this British mystery is Harry Bliss, the much-vilified widower of beloved cult novelist and former model Alison Bliss, who, six years earlier, took her life by walking into the sea. At the time of her death, Alison had been researching Harry's family history for her next novel in the seaside town of Glaven where, at the turn of the last century, Harry's great-grandmother, Arabella, had also drowned herself. On the eve of his retirement from teaching, Harry becomes infatuated with his best friend's 19-year-old daughter, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Arabella. Together, they set out for Glaven to try to piece together the puzzle of Alison's suicide. Nipping at their heels are an Alison-hungry press and two biographers intent on getting their own scoops.
