Item description for Death of a Dormouse (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries) by Reginald Hill...

Trudi Adamson has lived her life in fear - of strangers, of asking questions, of angering her husband, of leaving the house. When her husband dies in a car accident, she retreats even further into her cocoon of ignorance and incuriosity. But staying there isn't an option; her husband apparently died broke, and Trudi's best hope lies in suing the company responsible for his death. And that means asking what her husband was doing on a remote stretch of Yorkshire road. Even the painful knowledge that a woman was involved only leads to larger, more baffling questions. Who was Eric Blair and why did Trent Adamson have his credit cards? Why had Trent suddenly quit his job? By the time Trudi's done unraveling the truth, her cozy refuge will be in ruins, but the quivering dormouse, too, will be history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Death of a Dormouse (Felony & Mayhem Mysteries)?

disappointing  Aug 8, 2008
I only read the first chapter because I knew I wasn't going to like this book.
There were two things about this novel that I found unappealing. First: there was too much foul language too soon.Nor did I find it believable. I can't imagine two matrons talking to each other like that. It doesn't ring true.

Second: the main character's history/personality was unattractive. Agoraphobia? And she overcomes it? Yawn.
Still looking for the next Dorothy Sayers or Michael Innes.
Transformation  Jul 17, 2008
A very good psychological suspense wherein a woman goes from "dormouse" that is totally subdued to a fighter: for her rights and for a life as she wants to live it. Reginald Hill is one of the best English mystery writers and he shows his stuff here. This work reminds me of Rendell in one of her good psychological mysteries and he is as competant as she is in showing "what makes people tick".
An Early Gem from Reginald Hill  Jan 21, 2008
"Death of a Dormouse" is one of the Reginald Hill early mysteries now being reprinted in the "Felony and Mayhem Mysteries." This book is intricately and convincingly plotted and definitely falls into the "page-turner" category. It's hard to put down. Unlike Hill's later books that feature a detective team, "Death of a Dormouse" is the story of a timid and passive woman seriously wronged by her dead husband who has to peel back her twenty year marital relationship in order to reinvent herself and get on with life. The peeling back proves to be extremely dangerous and one unlikely discovery after another about her husband's business and extra-marital activities threaten to violently end her life. The evolution of the heroine into a resourceful and cunning player is as interesting as the extraordinary plot line.
This is an excellent read, particularly if you have NOT already read "The Spy's Wife," to which "Death of a Dormouse" owes some of its theme.
A great read.  Nov 28, 2007
I am a fan of Hill's. This is a great read if you like his work, particularly his characterizations. It is one of the few crime novels that I have kept to reread. The only drawback is that you keep wanting to race ahead to outguess him and this detracts from enjoying the journey. I highly recommend it.

An added bonus is the very nice Felony & Mayhem presentation.
