Laura Wilson

Willing Victim

It's 1956 and the world is in turmoil-the Bikini Atoll, the Suez Crisis, the Hungarian Uprising-these are just some of the events of that year Inspector Ted Stratton can't help but think about as he makes his way through a murder investigation. The murder victim is a young man in London whose bookshelves are filled with literature on spirituality and esoteric religions, and who had just recently left the Foundation for Spiritual Understanding, a new age cult based in Suffolk. Traveling to Suffolk to investigate, Inspector Stratton encounters a community of fervent believers led by an enigmatic, charismatic leader, and a femme fatale with a shady past. In addition to a gripping, twisty investigation, the book is also a portrait of England in the mid-nineteen-fifties, and a meditation on the dangerous power of faith.
